I've just watched a report on Financial News Asia about that in the last hour. It's an interesting move, but I have to wonder if it's a bit late. Leveraged buyouts are always risky, and pulling Dell off the NASDAQ isn't exactly conventional. There seems to be considerable speculation/doubt regarding the potential of the play.

The thing that might make this successful is Microsoft's particpation, but one has to wonder what part of his soul Michael had to sell for the deal.

I can remember some years ago in the financial printing business handling some offerings for MSD Capital [MD's holding company]. The difference was that then, everything Dell did turned to gold. What a difference a decade makes.
