SlideshowDell Confirms Possible IPO or VMware Merger

The future is cloudy... I'm not sure how VMware benefits from a reverse merger (and I'm in good company with those who made its stock price fall), but Dell could definitely benefit from having more cloud software and cloud services in its portfolio. 

It's a bit strange to see the possibility of these mergers being discussed publicly. I suppose Dell is testing the waters to see how their partners and interested parties react. I thought the whole point of Dell going private was to allow it the freedom to pursue avenues that might not be viewed favorably by short-tem investor shareholders. Testing the waters like this.. makes it seem like they're not too confident in their own long-term strategies?
