Of HP myths and mergers

Author: JT Smith

ZDNet has a column by HP CEO Carly Fiorina. "Why are market-unifying
standards such as Itanium,
Unix/Linux, NT, open source,
open APIs, and open
connectivity standards so
important in the context of our
merger with Compaq and the
future of the technology
industry? Because
market-unifying standards
will shift the underlying
economics and the basis of
competition in this industry by
leading to more competition,
greater choice and flexibility
for businesses, and better
ease of use for consumers."
