Buyout, buyout, buyout – buyout, buyout, buyout... reminds me of Mel Brooks in Blazing Saddles "work, work, work - work, work, work!
I prefer, patents, patents, patents – integrated software/hardware solutions – sector paradigm shift from the desktop to the cloud. What is inevitable here is the bottleneck of storage – it will be resolved. And this company will be part of it whether it means being bought (Microsoft, Seagate, Micron, WD or private) or whether they innovate and survive. They sit at the epicenter of the coming change and the idea that they will go bankrupt is an unfair assumption and simply does not hold water.
that's RS plan make it or die trying. there won't be a fast buyout like the bagholders here think. they will survive as long as possible. i am sure this will include dilution and the selling of the consumer lines to keep the enterprise lines afloat.
