When did MicroFocus buy or take over the Silk products from Borland?
I just hope that they are as serious in Software Quality as the tools they acquired lately. I did browse through their website tonight and found misspellings, typos, Syntax Error from just a few pages -- NOT a good sign for Quality. It seems like they could use SilkTest to test their website.

Maybe Micro Focus will be More (not micro) Focused than Borland in keeping pace with the new technology to continue making SilkTest the better tool. (hopefully) [img]/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]
Attempting to get to know Micro Focus last Friday did not go too well. Working with a company who wants to see SilkTest in action (AUT pretty much MPF (graphical) stuffs), we tried to download the latest SilkTest and all we got was an email saying that "someone will contact you soon". So, now people cannot get the Trial version and start the evaluation right away. You click on the Download Now link and go through the Registration process and that's it -- you'll have to wait for someone to contact you before they give you the Trial version. We checked the nearest/local Micro Focus office and the one that showed is in Santa Ana, CA and no phone number given. I guess we better contact the other office in San Diego tomorrow.
Haha. I'm sure it'll stay put for a while under MicroFocus. They also purchased all of Compuware's QA tools, including TestPartner.
Going forward, it appears MF will be combining Silk and TestPartner, keeping the SilkTest name. I believe they are also going to be introducing a new scripting language. Maybe someone else who attended the roadmap presentation a few months ago can recall.
