    The only way to go.

    EMC had run itself into a corner (albeit quite a lucrative one). As I said before the Dell-EMC deal was announced: "EMC will have to kill itself to survive". EMC is gone, long live EMC!

    I just hope that as many people as possible keep their jobs. The rest of this deal will just be about the dispersal of spoils to the share-holders and the board (which is not unusual or nasty, just the way corporations work). Once that is over it is my hope that the "new" EMC can survive and once again do great things in the area of technology.
