"VMware beat analyst expectations, but only just. Analysts expected revenue of $1.58 billion, slightly lower than the actual $1.59 billion."

When investors complain about this sort of thing, it really just highlights the problems that publicly traded companies and their boards and CEOs face every day.  The long term must so frequently be mortgaged in favor of the short term to appease unrealistic and increasingly irrational investor expectations.

Little wonder Michael Dell wanted to take Dell private.  I wonder if VMware execs are feeling any envy for EMC right now...
