I was right ;-) This time something I can agree with. There is just one thing I think should be added:

I rather doubt he would and don't see any reason why he should. I am assuming that WRI's business is doing well and that Wolfram is satisfied with the present model. (Certainly, even if only half the things alleged by AES are true he *should be* satisfied.) But in that case why should he listen to the advice of someone with no record of (comparable) success in running a business? Say, if you are a  successful professional tennis player, do you listen to a mere spectator who advises you to change your style just because *he* believes you will do even better if you do?
