Homeostasis wins most of the time
"Lots of customers don't enjoy chnage - they know how to work the existing interface and if you force them to learn a new one, they could just as easily learn a competitors."
Judging from the continued desktop domination of Windows and Ubuntu Linux, users are much more likely to stay with the brand they have been with for a while, than to move to anything with a different brand name.
Re: summarily terminated
Short-term thinking naturally leads to short-falls in long-term initiatives. I reckon there will be an uptick in employment in the geriatric-hit field as soon as next Thursday. Watch the "help wanted" advertisements.
The obvious answer for the company is to sell out, and the new owner can sue to get the stagnant funds (unrelated to a living person) in the pension bucket out to pay for the purchase. This was how Bain Capital and other equity vultures operated, as I understand. The stagnant funds could be used to fund the ongoing pensions of currently living persons, but one way to claim a shortfall is to exclude such stagnant funds from your report as distributable. The stagnant funds are still accruing interest in the fund, but the money will never be distributed to pensioners. There could be billions in the fund that are being conveniently ignored to make the claim of an imminent shortfall.
