Interesting Story about ActiveState

I just read an interesting press release from ActiveState, the company I worked for, immediately after leaving the Uni. It seems that they've been acquired by Sophos. According to the press release, all shares of ActiveState have been bought by Sophos which means that both Dick Hardt and O'Reilly are out of the picture. I wonder what the future of things like PerlEx and Komodo are considering that ActiveState is now an "Anti-Spam Specialist". They say they will still develop the "product lines for open source programmers" but I've heard that line before and I wonder how long it will last. Both Python and PHP went that route. Thankfully, Perl itself is owned by Larry.
