Borland SilkTest

From today's news :

Borland Software Corp (BORL) will cut about 8 percent of its work force, or about 90 employees, and close facilities in six locations as part of an ongoing restructuring plan, Borland said in a filing on Friday.

I haven't tracked the performance of BORL for a while, but today's entire market capitalization based on current $2.9 per share price is around $210 million. It seems the best chances Borland SilkTest has to survive is if someone like Google, HP, Oracle or Microsoft decides to buy Borland out while the company is cheap. In the same time I personally afraid of is that the purchaser may not feel sturdily how superb SilkTest comparing with Selenium or HP QTP and soon will dump Borland SilkTest.
