No opinion of CEO

Pros

Innovative company with very talented engineering team. The company is not as innovative as it once was, but still has good memory system architecture.

Cons

Management made poor decisions during the late 1990's that hurt the company for the next decade. It remains to be seen if a turnaround can be achieved after the acquisition by Rackable.

Advice to Management

Keep the engineering team challenged with new innovations. Avoid commodity technology. Focus on memory system technology and large scale data processing.
