We were screwed by Autonomy with their Zantaz product, so I can't say I'm shocked. After working with them for years to get it working, I went to a class to be 'certified' to continue getting our level of support we needed. Found out then that their dev manager was a farking maniac. The difference module teams could not talk to each other outside of planned and scheduled meetings, which I gathered were not very often. So you would end up with modules that had radio button for selection in one part of the product while the module it fed into had check boxes. All sorts of other stuff like that was tossed in the product.

Why HP acquired them I have no idea, but we no they bought Palm and had no idea where to go from there either. Strange company.
