Interest in Yahoo from Microsoft?
Do you think it will be a good or bad thing ?

Microsoft are the biggest bunch of bandits since Genghis Khan and his hordes swept across Europe. If they get their fingers into Yahoo, it will be a disaster. They produce a "new" OS every couple of years, long before it is ready and then get the general public to test it for them. Every software company they touch becomes useless within a few months. They can't produce a decent firewall or AV suite. I moved my e-mail account to Yahoo after the "Hotmail" farce a few years back. Worst news of the week.

Ditto to the two above answers....
Hotmail is awful...had an account 5+ years ago and
let it expire. MS can't manage a decent webmail or
search engine; kinda mirrors their competence
creating OS's without major flaws and loosing
[read forcing] them upon the public before they
are ready for prime-time.
IMHO...the only reason MS wants Yahoo! is to
remove it as a competitor...buy it and close it.
They've got plenty of money to do that. Then they
have only Google to go head-to-head with. The day
Yahoo! is bought by MS is the day I jump the
good ship Yahoo! It won't be worth a pile of horse apples
soon after that as it will be comparable to being assimilated into the Borg collective with Bill Gates as the Borg Queen.
What a pathetic end to a super website.

Microsoft is in Competition with Google!
They dont have the best search engine! So they are turning to Yahoo!
I dont think Yahoo will sell his name to Microsoft! They might just put sme Microsoft adverts! thats all!

Well it will be for them...they've never been able to construct a decent search engine of their own. its fine with me as long as they dont change anything!
