Re: Breaching UK Discrimination Legislation ..
I'd be interested to know the period of history when the description "great" applied to IBM. "Dominant" perhaps, but most of their dominance related to a huge motivated sales force, and some of the "packaging" that Microsoft were later crucified for. IBM's 60's vintage machines were horrible to operate and program. They had the "we don't use standards, we are the standard" attitude. Even into the 80's and 90's they were constantly missing the boat and carried on mostly because of big-iron business. Companies like that become bloated and complacent, and eventually either sink completely or do massive layoffs. Hence today.
