The documents produced by Borland at that time were company
confidential and the people who had access to them are
constrained by non-disclosure agreements. I can say
that between July and December of 1999, over 60% of the
developers left the group - most leaving the company - along
with the business unit manager, two development managers, and
the support manager. The QA and documentation managers left
shortly thereafter. Those of you who regularly attended
Borcon can probably name a lot of the missing faces.
