    • The answer is very simple,

      CSCO already ownes 6% of vmw when it went public back in 2007. So does Intel owns 3 to 6% from what i recall.

      Rest of the VMW is wholy owned by EMC so if CSCO bought EMC, VMW comes with it since emc has the ownership.

      totaol of 400mil shares, 78mil shares or so are a float, lot of which is owned by insiders and VMW staff. 300mil is with emc.

      So 30dollar a share for EMC is a bargin. considering maket cap for VMW alone is 35bil alone.. so emc will only cost them 18dollar a share.

      EMC has substantial cash so does VMW, which amounts to close to 10bil..

      You do the math, this really is a bargin. I personnaly think EMC is worth about 34 to 36 dollar a share.

      CSCO is stupid, if they dont go for it. This will put them in driving seat to start competeing with IBM HP ORCL and many other companies..
