Intel "Intel and VMware announced today that Intel Capital is taking a USD 218.5 million stake in virtualization company VMWare. Intel will purchase 9.5 million Class A shares at USD 23 per share, which, at the completion of VMware's forthcoming IPO, will give Intel about a 2.5 percent stake in the company. Because VMware's stock is split between Class A shares, which have less voting power, and Class B shares, Intel won't control that many votes in the company, but they will get a board seat."

Yeah, sounds like a huge amount of money for just...VMWare? I didn't know so many people used VMWare. But it must be generating tons of bucks to be worth this price tag.

Regarding KEMU, the problem is that it doesn't generate much money, and probably doesn't have many customers. This is what's important when you sell your company.
