you are a fool. all cloud deals are going to MS. Did you hear google+MS got the US government cloud deal. This deal is so big so big that you could not even imagine. VMW rev. growing due to growth in service rev. Not a good parameter for a software company.
Dude- I don't know whether you are a investor, or a tech guy - either way, you are a little behind the curve. MS vs VMW? I don't think so. (Disclosure - I'm a tech guy making a bit of money on this stock).
