I guess I thought that since Seymour left CDC to form Cray Research, 
that meant that he was more of an employee at CDC and had less influence 
on how it operated as a company.  I would have assumed that someone that 
was a founder would have had more influence and tried to improve things 
before splitting off and forming yet another new company.
