You would need to qualify that slightly by saying the possibility, though rare,
may depend on the source of the capital used for the purchase. There are those
with adverse motives of course... ( hypothetically MS funds the vmware purchase

users for infringement under the MS-Novell deal). Nah -- it would never happen
