CNet reports that BMC is cutting staff and shifting jobs overseas. These guys have a product that was written in VW, which their management insisted just had to be re-done in Java. So far as I know, that conversion was never successful. Yet another case where the urge to redo everything, without regard to any business value - just doesn't pan out. I'd be willing to bet that the re-write mania swept through a lot of their apps, not just the one I'm familiar with.
I sure hope that IT shops are getting a little smarter about this - if not, expect to see MS oriented shops not just adopting .NET, but mindlessly porting existing apps to it.
