They have been bought by HP. They also tried to "buy" the people,
but at least Stefan didn't seem to be too happy with it.

Stefan is one of the brightest programmers I've ever seen. Unfortunately
I havn't been able to "convert" him, but he is always willing to discuss
design issues or problems if he as time, as long as you do not ouch
