There are of course all sorts of restrictions on the types of things we can say related to financial disclosures, confidential information, etc. I think the reason you don't see that one person commenting is that we know about as much as everyone else: what we see in the press. Most of the commentary here has been positive with an overwhelming sense of "Dell is going to have their hands full with EMC." I don't mean that in a negative way. It's just going to be a lot of work to figure that whole thing out and we'll be on the sidelines in the short-term. At VMware it'll probably feel like swapping one 80% shareholder with another 80% shareholder.

My opinion might change after they start trickling out some more information about the deal. The only sure insider bet: Lots of "Dude you're gettin' a Dell" jokes to go around.

I've received two calls from these scammers... and the example you provided is not far from the truth. When they claim to call from "The Windows" as the company name, it's painfully obvious what they are up to for about 99% of the computer using population. The problem is that 1%. They probably get a hit every once in a while that makes it profitable enough.
