    Everything on wallstreet (publically traded companies) is driven by the populace, who, in general, is dumb. So Dell going private would give them A LOT more freedom in what they do as it would keep them out from under the public's thumb, and it would also give them a lot more freedom government wise. There are a lot more things affected by going private, but it basically boils down to those 2 things. Also lets them keep a lot more of the money that they actually earn in house instead of wallstreet fees, paying shares when someone sells, etc.

    Personally all companies should stay private, but thats just my opinion
