I happen to care a lot about third-party companies. They take risks, invent things and are often a lot of fun to watch. Too many of the good ones get swallowed up by huge companies and lose their identities (with the loss of CEOs and sometimes half their employees!).
I feared this would happen to Quest. Word had it last month that Dell wanted to buy Quest. Dell's been on a bigger buying spree than Larry Ellison (did you hear he just bought almost the entire island of Lanai?
Fortunately for me and perhaps Quest, Insight Ventures kept the company private with a $2.2 billion buyout.
I'm a fan of Quest. Heck, I'm a fan of most third parties in the Windows market, and thank them for their guts and tenacity.
Want to know how the geniuses behind these third parties come up with their ideas? Look no further, for the Secrets of the Windows Gurus awaits.
