He won....I take my hat off to him. Dell has tipped his hand by cancelling the meeting. If he wasn't so desperate to take Dell private FOR HIMSELF, he would've let the die fall where it may. But he wouldn't, Carl saw him for the egomaniac that he obviously is, not satisfied with billions of dollars, having to have the company with his name on it also. Congrats Carl, in the game of chicken...YOU WON.
Carl is a dried up old prune. Why the heck is he not vacationing like Ted Turner or pick up friendly deals like Buffet? At the very least, he should leave company like Dell and its employee alone, certainly for for an extra 35c per share.
