BORLAND vice president Rob Dickerson on why his company hasn't tried to develop versions of Paradox for Unix and other platforms: "Vendors that choose a single-platform focus strategy usually win, because they know how to take advantage of that platform. Compare Borland with AshtonTate, which is building a flavor of dbase IV for virtually everything that runs on electricity. As a result, they've got so many code bases, it makes it very difficult to evolve the product." (Quoted in Computerworld, 4/22/91)
