Lets say VMW revs were $100 for 2007. And additional $50 in deferred revenues. They are predicting 50% growth in Revs for 2008. That would pin 2008 revenues to be $150.
Now out of the $50 growth, VMW CFO said 20%-30% will be rolled in from 2007 deferred revenues. And plus the 2008 year's Service portion of the revenues which is usually at 40%. So out of $50 growth, approx $35 will be contributed by SERVICE and only $15 from LICENSE.
That is what the Analyst was trying to pin the CFO but he backed down and said they will not break that. But we all know why !
