VMware Numbers

VMware had another stellar quarter. Often, setting sales and earnings records isn't enough for Wall Street -- but it was this time around. For the quarter, VMware yanked in almost a half-a-billion dollars, up a third compared to the same quarter last year. And net income of around $100 million was up more than 50 percent.

This all beat expectations -- expectations that were modest due to the tough recent economy. In a brutal market yesterday, VMware only lost $1.33 a share. For a day like Wednesday, that's a major victory.
