"Jim Ready doesn't look like the kind of guy who would
deliberately short-circuit the Silicon Valley economy just because
he couldn't get a parking space in downtown Mountain View."
"Still, after fighting lunchtime traffic and circling the
block a half dozen times, Ready, founder and chief executive
officer of Monta Vista Systems, makers of Hard Hat Linux, is more
than happy to announce his company's radical stealthlike plan for
changing the world of high tech as we know it."
"Step 1: Put all IPO talk on the back burner."
"We're not overly focused on going public," Ready says. "We're
focused on maximizing the opportunity we see in the market. In our
current circumstances we're quite happy being a private company,
because it gives us more flexibility. "
