VMWare the leader in Virtual Servers and Computers is thinking about buying DELL (an industry leader in computers).  As you may be aware, DELL, Inc. was once a publicly traded company but founder Michael Dell purchased the company back and made it private again.  Now VMWare wants to purchase DELL and reverse the private label back to public called a reverse-merger.  This is a significant purchase since DELL owns 80% of the computing power of VMWARE.  See the article here:
