StarNine Rockets Out of Quarterdeck

StarNine Rockets Out of Quarterdeck -- Last week, Quarterdeck sold StarNine Technologies - best known for WebSTAR, ListSTAR, and other Internet-related products - to Platinum Equity Holdings. StarNine will be preserved as an independent company, operating with hands-off support from Platinum. The StarNiners now have added incentive to ship WebSTAR 3.0 quickly (currently in public beta) so they can focus on new opportunities provided by Platinum. The sale also means that StarNine's current products have a better chance to flourish in a more supportive environment. History buffs will recall that Quarterdeck purchased StarNine in October of 1995 (see TidBITS-297). Since then, StarNine has remained profitable, but suffered as a result of Quarterdeck's losses and lack of focus. [TJE]
