    I guess this, if it comes to pass, must be perfectly legal but getting a company your a majority shareholder in to buy your company sure seems peculiar or like some sort of clever accounting trick. :confused:

    It is not about accounting trick, but about the parent company not being listed on NASDAQ, while VMware is. Instead of going through the lengthy process of being listed again, they let VMware "buy" Dell, then probably change the VMware to Dell, while keeping the old NASDAQ ticker.

    'Bigliest technology deal ever' - Fox News. Allegedly.

    So... buy VMWare stock in anticipation? Short VMWare? Retreat to minimum safe distance with popcorn to watch the fireworks?
