Greene's Beau Leaves VMware

There must have been some interesting dinner conversation after Diane Greene was fired as CEO of VMware while her husband and co-founder, Mendel Rosenblum, stayed on as chief scientist. Now, on the eve of VMworld, Rosenblum has left the company, as well.

My guess is that Rosenblum's departure was only a matter of time. I think he was mentally ready to leave after his wife was ousted, but out of loyalty to his troops he stayed on to ease the transition.

The couple made many millions, but neither seems like the type to drift off into the sunset on a 250-foot yacht. What would you like to see from this dynamic duo? Suggestions welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
