    Will Broadcom bail on the deal??

    Any chance with the worsening global economic situation.. Broadcom will go all Musky and just bail on the deal?? Almost buyers regret??

    They seem unwilling to conclude it at any sort of pace and realise the benefits underpinning the deal.

      Broadcom had very aggressive schedules for completing the Symantec & CA acquisitions. Many could argue hasty decisions were made without considering long term implications. The consequences of those decisions have negatively impacted the viability of both acquired companies, as evidenced by the unhappy customer comments in forums such as this.

      The slow pace could be a good thing. It may mean Broadcom has learned their lesson. Time will tell.

        I think the only thing holding it up is the EUC quite rightly asking wtf is going to happen if Broadcom destroys all of the non-cloud infrastructure by acquiring its sole viable vendor. (yes there are alternatives... if you have time and inclination.. but ESX stands alone).

        One can only hope Broadcom is going to Musk this... though too late since the trust damage was already done to customers, employees and shareholders by the VMW board in even agreeing to the offer.

    I don't want to talk about it = BAD

    If it was good, you couldn't get him to shut up about it. Broadcom's strategy is tying VMware to the tracks and then running it over with a train.

    Best have an exit strategy in hand if you aren't already half way out the door, it's about to get bumpy.
