What affect will this have on FAST?
My guess is that it won’t have much of an impact. FAST, as "a Microsoft subsidy", has continued to do well technically in the market place (see Gartner Pegs Microsoft as Top Enterprise Search 'Leader') and legally Microsoft will weather any financial scandal of that occurred before the purchase of FAST.Worse case, a further deemphasis on the FAST brand and more focus on Microsoft - but we knew that would be the case anyway ... .
Still, it's a shame; no one likes it when an "All Star" is caught cheating.
