I just wonder what Bill and Dave would have thought of this.

It would appear that Mr. Perkins was not only responding to this epsiode on his own behalf, but by proxy, on behalf of Bill & Dave:

"My history with the Hewlett-Packard Company is long and I have been privileged to count both founders as close friends."

"...It now needs, urgently, to correct its course."

Good for him.

Does Walter's ( http://news.com.com/2100-1001-870469.html ) lawsuit look any different today?

Probably rolling over in their graves. Shameful!

I'm guessing the founders of a number of companies would be disappointed in what their successors are doing for the sake of a buck these days.
