Submission + - OSDL Lays Off Entire Engineering Staff

An anonymous reader writes: From a colleague of a colleague of a colleague:

OSDL just laid off their *entire* engineering staff this morning. No warning. It's a ghost town in the building now. Smells of some really nasty board-level politics, but information is not exactly plentiful.

All OSDL hosting is frozen — no more new projects effective immediately. The infrastructure staff has been reduced to a single person (who also has to manage the in-house LAN and desktop support). I get the feeling OSDL is going to be encouraging projects hosted here to go elsewhere. The one remaining infra staff was already talking to management about what systems in the lab could be shut down to save on the power bill.

To write good code is a worthy challenge, and a source of civilized delight. -- stolen and paraphrased from William Safire
