Positive signs

McAfee acquiring Solidcore for a decent multiple
EMC acquiring Configuresoft for a good multiple as well
Solarwinds positive IPO

Couple of fire-sales as well of companies that simply can’t make it.

Big companies will buy at the bottom of the market where they can get the best bargains (sort of like buying at the bottom of the housing market).
The walking dead will finally die off.

These all seem like signs of the market shaking itself out ready for a recovery.
