    For the whole article:

    or

    Personally, I'd bet the cuts are more a result/related to the costly fines and legal fees associated with Gates not following the law when trading... then again, what do I know. I'm not the one with $60 billion in the bank :)

    Nothing wrong with cost cutting. It'll benefit the investors more, and create more funds available for other projects. Maybe even employ more staff which they should in order to get Longhorn out the door. :p
