Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

The youngest billionaire in the Forbes Top 10, Michael Dell has been bragging again. This time it’s not about the size of his wad, but the rate at which his eponymous PC company is eating Compaq’s lunch. Talking at a press conference in New York this week, Dell scoffed at the idea that the PC industry is shrinking or stagnating. "Dell earned about 55 percent of the total profitability in the first quarter," he said. He went on to say that this gain looked set to increase as a result of yet another profit warning from Compaq. Perhaps one reason Compaq appears to be suffering is the growing number of corporate accounts Dell claims to be poaching from its rival. ®
