In a joint venture between Lenovo and IBM, Michael Dell anticipates the repetition of a pattern seen in many such ventures where two very different organizations fail to mesh. According to CNET News.com's Stephen Shankland, reporting from this morning's Q&A session with Dell executives at Oracle's OpenWorld conference, Dell said "We're not big fans of the idea of taking companies and smashing them together. When was the last time you saw a successful acquisition or merger in the computer industry? It hasn't happened in a long, long time...I don't see this one as being all that different."
