At least it may force them to build a few more quality products, I still get shakey thinking about Dell build 'quality'

Erm, M$ are paying $2bn out of $24bn, that's about 8% of the business. Would that give them enough clout? I doubt they'd have any say on the board and it's just a investment opportunity for them. How much do they own in Apple? or have they sold it all now?

It could well be, but they may well see an opportunity there? Maybe the next Surface will be made be dell who know.s

It does give them better access to hardware supply chains so it may work out for them in that way.

They did the same thing with Facebook, bought 10% stake and it guarantees them to use Microsoft services in the future.

The money from Microsoft is in the form of a loan. Dell should be able to pay it back in no time. What's wrong with that?

When Dell bought Wyse, they didn't stop supporting VMware View, Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop & Microsoft RDS.

Microsoft is trying to keep their strangle of the ecosystem.
No doubt we will be soon seeing Dell bring out all these wacky windows 8 frankenmachines that will miserably fail Oh I think they already did that!
