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.
