Only 3 developers remained out of 35 people, and not the people who wrote the core part 
of Zorba (and you should know by now how hard it is to write a good query processor
- i’s not a walk in the park).

I should know because I hired and trained each and every one of them.

A piece of software of 1.5 millions lines of code, written over 8 years, with no team
to maintain it and evolve it, is not “alive” anymore.

And it’s a very sad story, especially for me.
