I’m seeing a bunch of people leaving. I figure it has to do with the bankruptcy, lack of growth, bad management, etc., but is this there another only reason that I don’t know about? Like a RIF or something?

Riverbed is a dead company walking. What product/growth area does anyone think has even a remote potential to bring the company back to growth and relevance?

Would you stay on sinking Titanic knowing that the captain(s) left long time ago?
