VMware watch – who’s saying what?

I thought I'd collect and share links to news and blogs about VMware, following the departure of founder Diane Greene earlier today.  Without adding everything up and throwing it into a blender, it appears that most observers see this as a blown play by EMC.  I'm not so sure.  The timing isn't very good, but VMware probably needs a more operations focused leader at this stage of their development.  Whatever, it sure adds a lot of mystery to the industry at a time when things tend to get a little sleepy.
