BORLAND chairman Philippe Kahn on his company's "barbarian" culture: "The barbarian represents our dream of the free man. When he looks out, the sky is the limit. He lives by his friendship and his trust in his people. He is direct, trustworthy, and disdains luxury or useless possessions... Borland qualifies as a barbarian technology-driven culture. we focus on essentials, substance over form, the things that really make a difference to our customers and our shareholders." (Quoted in The New York Times, 8/18/91)
