Cool, I learned another acronym tonight : OCONUS - thought it meant overseas, but really "Outside Continental United States" is Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.

So, lots of Windows specific jobs and only a few Linux jobs.  Mostly dev jobs for Linux.  I suppose first responders etc still prefer the software be incompatible with the hardware if I read the job postings correctly :-)

Patch will take a patch file containing any of the
four forms of difference listing produced by the diff
program and apply those differences to an original file,
producing a patched version.

Germany is only 357168 square kilometers. There aren't any "far" parts of it :)

Yea, I guess thats the linked in attitude; and with that attitude they can fire as many of their german proconsuls as they like, they won't beat xing.

It is just a small drive Minnesota vs Germany.  I would not like to drive from 50 miles (80.4 KM) in Wisconsin to 30 Miles (48.2 KM) of South Dakota for a job:

I had collegues driving from Aix la chapelle to east of cologne, which is ~60 km

I wouldn't do that either. but Nuernberg to Cologne thats rather 600km - I wouldn't call that "near" by any chance...

Again? It keeps getting sold to various owners, for less and less money every time. Hopefully the next owner will be Attachmate (where software goes to die).

You also should note the magnitude of the company size decreases each time.

Yahoo [Microsoft], VMware, an ISP?

To Attachmate? For coin money at most.

And I don't think you're fair about Attachmate.

They at least identified that wagging the dog by Ximian <-> SuSE which Novel had permitted for allmost a decade and fired those assholes before the ink under the contracts was dry.

Regarding SusE - these have been the only ones to offer professional Linux support for the Z plus they've got close relations to the IBMers that started to make it happen - Saarbruck to Nurnberg is just a 4 hours car ride in the end.

So for Attachmate as Z consultants, this was a pretty clever move to get a bridge to the present and pretty descent knowhow for migrating MS-Solution to Linux basedones (running on the Z (if))

Btw, did you hear that IBM refocused their Z offerings around Linux? You can now get them without Z/OS with Linux as hypervisor.

I think SuSE is doing pretty well now that it got rid of that gnome / see-carpet shit and can use KDE again - a return to their origins..

I'd be very happy if Z* simply focused their efforts on the service provider sector and dropped their pathetic "community edition." Leave the open source email server business to the folks who do it right :)

what I was trying to say is, that Attachmate gives a lot of very good Open source programmers a good job for programming open source. You shouldn't give them a bad name just because of they are probably more old economy than any other company you're aware of.

I worked for Attachmate for about a year.

I'd be happy to say bad things about them.

The reason I said Attachmate is because they seem to specialize in keeping obsolete software on life support for the customers who still use it. Their original purpose in life -- access to big host systems from personal computers -- is no longer all that relevant since all computers big and small now speak roughly the same network protocols (and the ones that don't, are so out of date that they fall into Attachmate's new "life support" role).

Now you've got me curious. Never really heard about these guys except that they vaguely ring a bell from the late 90s. And since my purpose in life lately is host system integration of the airline variety, this could generate some lulz...

Yep. Lulz provided by wikipedia (of course):

Novell acquisition

Novell announced in November 2010 that it had agreed to be acquired by Attachmate for $2.2 billion.

I guess that a bunch of jerks like that, could only be acquired by a bigger bunch of useless jerks.

Yup. It was split up, though. The legacy Netware stuff went to Attachmate.
SuSE was spun back off into its own operation, which is what dothebart was talking about earlier. And those two asshats Miguel and Nat went off and created a new Ximian (called Xamarin this time).

So yes, "acquired by Attachmate" is a synonym for "obsolete"

What IG says is so here.

Attachmate purchased WinINSTALL, but then spun off another company and sold WinINSTALL off to it.

WinINSTALL is basically dead.

They fired almost the entire staff in the process... keeping only two people.
I quit, so they didn't have an opportunity to fire me, heh.

WinINSTALL had at least a few customers who relied upon it for distributing their software around... enough to make it worth purchasing if they fired the staff and kept a few around for maintenance purposes.

So, yeah, this is where software goes to die.
