Really? This makes about as much sense as HP buying Compaq, and I'm sure you all remember how well that worked out, since Carly Fiorina is in the news again. Of course, Dell will get VMWare, which is doing well.
Maybe I'll drop Joe Tucci a note about how EMC managed to kill the spirit of Documentum, or maybe about how there was a period when people were getting promoted....but not getting the raises that should have gone with those promotions. Yes, you could say that I have some very good reasons for working elsewhere now.
UPDATE: And Joe Tucci will get a remarkably nice payout. Anyone want to guess how many layoffs there will be when the purchase goes through?
