  1. Hopefully they put carbon black where it belongs… In the bin!
    Great way to turn even the most powerful pcs into something that resembles a computer with a Pentium 3 installed.

  2. Hopefully they don’t ruin Protect/Bit9. It’s one of the better Whitelisting tools. And while it doesn’t seem to get a ton of dev time, it’s pretty good and mostly stable.

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://techcrunch.com/2019/08/22/vmware-acquires-carbon-black-for-2-1b-and-pivotal-for-2-7-billion/) reduced by 61%. (I’m a bot)
