The IT world has gone acquisition bonkers. Dell is paying as much for EMC as any football club would do to secure the combined services of Messi and Ronaldo. Well almost...

OK - so who remembers Project Manager Workbench, PMW for hose who were there at the time (or even Microsoft Project, the project management software for the under 5's)?

Who remembers printing out Gantt chars on A3 that you wallpapered the office walls with?
