Guys,

Article about Gilman Louie's new company in today's
Wall Street Journal.

Pretty interesting.

For us non U.S. readers, how about a bit of an extract?

Does the new company do anything with computer games
or flight sims?

I am kinda mixed about Gilman. He is responsible for falcon - but he also
released the some pretty buggy code to the unsuspecting public. let's just
say that I'll be very wary of purchasing anything put out by Chopstick.....

Since I didn 't pick up yesterday's WSJ , I missed the article about
Gilman . However , going on what almost everyone in this group
previously heard about Gilman , and , HIS , " , Company " , haha ,
( pardon the faux paux , for all familiar with Clancy novels or
specials on the History channel ) , post MPS , I guess he is trying
to acclimate to being a wanna be SPOOK entrepreneurial agent that
actually MAKES cash , if he formed a NEW company .

I wonder , WTF happened ? He couldn 't work MPS/F4 stolen shit into
anything anyone , either our allies or the , " Company " , would
want without iBeta code resuscitation ? : P

Man I guess the backlash against Flightsims , us , and our hobby is
bigger then we thought !!! Well at the very least Gilman could have
put the code for X-Com Interceptor on the block if need be , as .
stolen clandestine/ covert op secured Area 51 reverse engineering .

Sorry for being pissed , but in terms of my opinion about loyalty and
... err shit like that ( lets make this short , no ? ) , Gilman ,
although he was a dude I defended vehemently , now has , unless I
hear otherwise , sadly , the same respect I give a Coney Island White
Fish , used ... of course , that I flush to it's final resting place .

I seem to recall reading an interview article in which Gilman said he was
away doing an exec MBA program at Harvard during the early development of
F4.

Upon his return, he realised/discovered that the apparently inexperienced
development team had got into trouble with the code. It seems the stark
choices facing him was either to restart from scratch, can the project or
rework major parts of the code.
