Microscope is reporting that VMware will cut the product prices by 10% starting next Monday.

As the articles correctly states this move counter the previous 10% price increase that became effective Sep. 1, generating a lot of negative comments.

Microscope couldn’t receive an answer on how VMware can afford this while even its competitors like Citrix are raising up the prices by the same 10%.

Is this a first, concrete effect of the new CEO Paul Maritz guidance?

Update: This cut is effective only in those countries (Europe, Australia and New Zealand) where VMware raised the price Sep. 1, as detailed above. Other countries like Japan don’t benefit of the price cut.
