You're all right Mr. Wave Theory. Short answers are best.

Not only has Michael Dell indicated Kevin is a solid executive. Michael has also explained that a falling stock price fails to understand how Dell works -- in terms of our investing for our future business and continued leadership of this business sector. This speculation also fails to undersdtand Dell's shared leadership responsibilities. What you forgot to mention is that Kevin Rollins has a solid history at Dell: strengthening the implementation of our direct model in the early years; as one the leaders seeing the company through the internet-bubble burst; and the last ten years of solid growth that made a young 20 year old company number one. He is currently leading the charge to ensure we are investing for future growth.
