LXer: Microsoft’s help in going private may not be in Dell’s best interests

Published at LXer:

In 1997, at the height of his PC-fueled bravado, Dell CEO Michael Dell said publicly that Apple, then in decline, should be dissolved. "I'd shut it down and give the money back to shareholders." Now Apple sits near the pinnacle of the industry, and Dell is looking at giving his company's stockholders their money back—and taking the company private. And it looks like Microsoft is going to give him a hand with that.
