I believe that Mr. Dell Orchestrated this deal solely, he is too smart and he knows how to put complicated topics to test, that what he is been doing for so many years ,and I believe he knows a head of time the outcome, the deal will consummate by Dell consent.
He does have many cards to play in his sleeve; he believes this is nothing but a venture, pure business.
The man is determined and he believes this company is his baby he builds it, and put his name on it, you might say he is a little egotistical.
So I suppose we have (whoever wish) to stand up and tell him NO and we should fight for what we believe is right. By doing so, there will be a winner and a loser, in worst scenario our loss compared to his is a drop in a bucket, in addition, even if he win, he will lose credibility and many individual share holder in the future business he try to conduct in the event the deal didn’t reach fulfillment by both sides.
