SomeNone864193dIn my opinion, IBM has lived on waaay past its expiration date, kinda like many of the satellites up in Earth's orbit.
rutee0712003193dSame experience here.
The horror stories I have to tell about IBM, their software and their shitshow cavalcade of illiterati troglodyte window lickers they've apparently just pulled off the streets, sat in a chair and send a bill for.
Can't argue with that. One of the clients I'm currently working with, IBM has their hooks in deep. I wrote a set of 4 endpoints, billed about 3 days for all the work. IBM turned around and billed 5 man months to proxy the calls between systems, and actually broke the data contract in transit.
IBM can fucking burn.
