CA Open Source Guru on Ingres, lambasts IBM, SCO

Fernando Cassia writes "Mark Barrenechea, VP of product development at Computer Associates and the man behind the company's decision to open source its Ingres database didn't spare words about SCO and IBM on an interview published on The Inquirer UK.

" when you have more lawyers than programmers, you have to question your corporate mission" -he said refering to SCO. And about IBM, he questioned the quality of IBM's code and its commitment to the Open Source community: "Their open distributed lock manager was one of the worst pieces of code I have seen in a long time. We spent weeks getting it to work. Consider IBM's effort around Axis. They create a soap platform and abandoned it.""
