Google is a search engine, plain and simple w/ mass appeal. I doubt most people know what the hell it is VMW does. Too specialized to make any sense to most non-technical investors. Reminds me of sun micro systems...good luck
Trust me. If you explained the complex formula behind Google's search engine to a non-technical investor then they would look at you scratching their head. Who knew what Microsoft was before they got big? Sometimes it doesn't have to make sense to make dollars.
