The HP Way, and How It Completely Screwed HP | Wired Enterprise | Wired.com

Excerpt from a longer-term HP software reality check
"It’s the latest in a string of failed high-profile acquisitions by a mismanaged company, but it’s more than that. Autonomy was also supposed to be HP’s big shot at moving into the high-margin software business that’s kept its two biggest competitors — IBM and Oracle — chugging along. But it shouldn’t be a big surprise that the acquisition has proved to be a colossal failure. If HP has proved anything over the past decade, it’s that it doesn’t do software, at least not the sort of enterprise software that big companies pay lots of money for so they can manage their data and corporate assets."
