He also said, in the next sentence, words to the effect that he would feel honor-bound to tell the prospective purchaser that there was no way the product could be made profitable.This was based on his view that the 16-bit code was so hashed from updates and mods that it was hard to fix one bug without creating -I think he actually said something like a dozen more.
As I recall it he said he felt he had to cancel the 32-bit version, started before he had control, because he could get no feeling of progress toward a completion date.
He came across as sincere (in my view) in that he was explaining how things appeared to him that led up to what he felt was a necessary but sad decision.
I know some attendees don't share my opinions of his sincerity.
