The Embarcadero deal seems, from my outsider's point of view, to be a great deal for CodeGear and for Embarcadero. There are so many different ways that the two companies' products can work together that it just makes a great deal of sense to me. It's less clear to me how it makes sense for Borland, but that's their problem. I'm curious about one thing, though. Embarcadero is, at present, a database tools vendor. With their purchase of CodeGear, they are acquiring two fine databases: InterBase and Blackfish SQL. Thus far, they've said very little about their intentions for these products, at least relative to what they've said about other CodeGear tools. Again, it seems like a great fit for Embarcadero's product line; there's lots of ways this could make sense. But I'd be interested to know what their plans are.
