Mr. Coder, VMWare Wants Ya

[qi:010] Google, which has been battling Facebook for talent recently, is facing an attack from another source. VMWare, the server and PC virtualization company that went public this summer, is hiring all the engineers it can find. Ann Winblad, a general partner at venture capital firm Hummer Winblad, recently quipped:

“As much as we all love [VMWare CEO] Dianne Green, we have to figure out a way of stopping VMWare from hiring all the engineers in the Valley.”

VMWare (VMW), despite a recent slide in its stock price, has a hefty market cap of over $31 billion. Too bad they can’t virtualize the engineers! Who would you rather work for: Google, VMWare, Facebook — or someone else? (Take our poll below the fold.)
