What's happening is a combination of MONEY as in "we don't want to
spend the money for printing, manpower etc." and MISUNDERSTANDING of
documentation and its added value.

Too easy these days for management to say "we've got online help, why do
we need docs ?" Besides, they don't want to give us the time to generate
good documentation or online help for that matter.....

I agree with you about the third party books. Looks like that might be
a place we'll all be soon.
