Probably you’ve heard the rumors or news already, but today Broadcom announced that it’s going to acquire VMware.
I personally don’t know what to think about this, but I don’t have any positive feelings about the future of VMware. After they were split of from Dell I was hoping that things would get better, especially their quality. But now being merged with Broadcom (they’re going to rebrand as “VMware”) I’m not sure what we can expect from them.
What do you say about this? Anything positive or negative about this?
Broadcom did publish a new blog post. It doesn't contain much information, and rather feels like an answer to all the negative comments: https://www.broadcom.com/blog/broadcom-vmware
And the EU is going to do an antitrust investigation and could probably block the acquisition: https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2022/06/broadcom-takeover-of-vmware-could-be-derailed-by-eu-antitrust-probe/
