Yeah, I guess I don't follow the "Evil dark side" thing either. Every
time I pay my license renewal it's pretty clear that SAS is a business
and not some non-profit, save-the-world type organization. As such,
like attracts like. And use of their product ultimately pays my mortgage
and groceries, so I guess I'm good.

read 'em and weep....
It is said that Jim Goodnight, CEO of SAS Institute, will share the
stage in Geneva with FBI director Robert Mueller among others. Some of
you might who have to work for a living might recall that SAS recently
expanded their software business by creating software that is used to
spy on the slaves who have to tolerate their masters.
That was a very evil realm for SAS to enter. It originally was a
company founded on a lofty goal, and Goodnight and John Sall got rich
as a result of sticking it out instead of being whipping boys or
stump-broke mules for IBM. But greed finally got the best of Goodnight
and Sall and they decided to indulge their childhood fantasies. It
turns out they used to play 'Sheriff' together as tykes...taking turns
as the 'good guy' and the 'bad guy'. The lines have been obscured
(and HATE corporate greed and 'the machine')
