    No. The opposite condition is reality. Buy the competition because
    their product is better. Integrate their products? Not a chance!
    Witness Cadence eats OrCAD who ate MicroSim. MicroSim Schematics is
    the infinitely superior product, so it's dead :-(

    It's what you learn after you know it all that counts.

    Can Microsim crank out EDIF netlist? I am really sick and tired of CRAPTURE.

    And Autocad acquired Generic Cad just to kill them.

    Looks like MicroSim can do EDIF, but I've not tried it recently. EDIF
    is one of those "standards" that ain't, created by a committee
    composed of competitors bent of crippling any competition wherever
    possible with obtuseness.

    Yes but Orcad PCB386+ uses it.

  9. The same with L3-Com and Microdyne. They spent over a million
    dollars to develop a DSP based telemetry receiver that didn't work worth
    a damn. They bragged that they were going to use it to put Microdyne
    out of business. When they found out how bad the design was, they
    bought Microdyne and slowly strangled it to death.

    However, Dilbert's line: "Did anyone tell you that their products
    are worthless pieces of garbage? Maybe that's why they sold the
    company?" is spoken by the workers at the new company in either
    case, better or worse, before they kill off the acquired rival.
     
  11. Quite so. Commercial history is littered with such examples where
    second-best prevails.
