Probably not a good sign for the HP-Prime.

apparently, this is in Hewlett-Packard Enterprise..

Calculators are in HP Inc...

Which does not mean that cuts are not coming that way too..

When I joined HP in 98, we were in the 60K employees... Then they was the Agilent Split...
Since then, it has been a continuous sting of high visibility layoffs (HP sheds 0% forkforce, HP sheds 20%...)

BUT, HP, pre-split, is at > 400K employees now!
I know that HP has gained a lot of employees through acquisitions, and this type of operations seems to be how HP gets rid of posts. Kind of a cleanup...

Glad it's not hitting the calc division, we can safely continue to look forward to all the updates that are yet to come. Sad for those affected though. Thanks for the clarification Cyrille.
