yea i find the whole emc/vmw thing bothersome. particularly for shareholders of emc - we got nothing - nothing - i understand that by virtue of makeing vmw there own company many millionairs were created - and im very happy for them - yea emc is buying more shares of vmw ? ok .... i bet for every share that emc buys....that vmw is printing one share out to company insiders ...its a way of drawing off cash from emc .. pump it into vmw and cash it in. after all what good is all that cash ..if its not in your own personal account ? ... but i have to ask ...how many homes do you need ?
