Yeah this is pretty old news now. It would never get approved for those 2 big companies to join like that.

It doesn't make sense for it to happen. There is no benefit of doing so. Why make 2 weak companies into one big weak one? DCX would not be killed. They'd be laughing because such a ridiculous agreement was made.
