Palmer just announced a reorg and management shuffle, but the price keeps dropping. How low will it go?"

Hoonta replies:

I have not heard about any recent reorgainzations. I will have to ask my DEC hardware rep about it tomorrow. Is Palmer planning to do another one? I would have thought he has cut as much staff as he can by now...

Sadly, this is one stock that I do not have much confidence in for the next few years. It is a SHAME TOO because they have the best non-graphical operating system (VMS) around. I still have not seen anything which can compare to the clustering technology for a VMS system.

After watching the way they treated their people (after OLSEN left)during the last round of firings, I can imagine what the morale is for the workers left behind.

I am still skeptical of what Palmer is trying to do.


Digital had clustering technology back in 1997...
