I called it! – Force10 bought by Dell

Not that it matters to me too much either way but Dell just bought Force10. I called it! Well it matters to me in that I didn’t want Dell near my Extreme Networks 🙂

It is kind of sad that Force10 was never able to pull off their IPO. I have heard that they have been losing quite a bit of talent recently, but don’t know to what degree. It’s also unfortunate they weren’t able to fully capitalize on their early leadership in the 10 gigabit arena, Arista seems to be the new Force10 in some respects, though it wouldn’t surprise me if they have a hard time growing too barring some next gen revolutionary product.

I wonder if anyone will scoop up BlueArc, they have been trying to IPO as well for a couple of years now, I’d be surprised if they can pull it off in this market.  They have good technology just a whole lot of debt. Though recently I read they started turning a profit..
