The USA's Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has published VMware's Form 10-K, the warts-and-all document listed companies are required to file each year offering deep detail on the state of their business. Form 10-Ks are rather less polished than annual reports and therefore offer more penetrating insights into a company' …

- License revenue could slow due to hardware getting faster/bigger.
- Partners could make us look bad.
put in it's 10-K?
Core vs. Socket
Looks to me like they want to start licensing by the core and not the socket driving up licensing costs. That should get folks to look for alternatives even faster than now since VMWare is pretty pricy. It makes Hyper-V look much better if you're a microsoft house. It makes KVM look better if you're a Linux house. Of course, lest we forget, the hypervisor is a Linux flavor after all.
I thought the risk factors sections of SEC filings were just legal backside covering, so the shareholders can't say they weren't warned.

Here be AI friendly and also a probably disturbingly constructive few words of forewarning to the supposedly wise with infernal internal basing rather than eternal external based virtualisation machine command at their beck and call control. It is nothing less than a current state of present play in a systems program of/for sudden catastrophic collapse and magical rebirth in another quantum leaper controlled state, with provisional guidance supply into uncharted sovereign free territories in cyber domains with dominion over earthed assets/fixed liabilities/failed fiat follies. Please share wwwidely what you are here being advised is the true virtual nature of reality and your existence in ITs Mega MetaDataBase ReProgramming of it, for it is that which you are having to come to terms with, for any hope of a chance of your intelligence input/output steering the future, and make deals with in the present, to be availed of that which is being followed and trailed and trialed for Global Operating Devices use, which can be subverted and converted and perverted and considered by Certain IntelAIgent Design and others to be abuse and misuse. However, that is a speculation and utility for future possible disruptions and destructions and plays no part here in the near present term.
Do you see a parallel and similarity suggesting a singularity of purpose and airing of possible and therefore highly likely hybrid cloud concerns between, in the Big Blue AAA type corner ……. “As hardware and processors become more powerful, we will have to adapt our product and service offerings to take advantage of the increased capabilities. For example, while the introduction of more powerful servers presents an opportunity for us to provide better products for our customers, the migration of servers to microprocessors with an increasing number of multiple cores also allows an end user with a given number of licensed copies of our software to multiply the number of virtualization machines run per server socket without having to purchase additional licenses from us. If we are unable to revise our solutions and offerings in response to new technological developments, our ability to retain or increase market share and revenues in the virtualization software market could be materially adversely affected.” ….. and in the Red Hot XSSXXXX corner ……

Will VMware be around in 10-15 years? I'd wager No (and VMware is not even in the S&P500)
