Yes, sf has ruined their UI.   But they are very reliable and offer a ton of
features - look at all the hosted apps options.  Dead?  SF actually has
money in the bank and a decent price to earnings ratio (last fal, but maybe
they were hit by Madoff since).  i would not be surprised if they are more
profitable than many glamorous names.  SF recently posted another job
posting for sysadmins to work from home.
