I hope it never happens. I hope Microsoft is not going to swallow Yahoo. I clearly don’t care that MS is going to drain its resources by the acquisition and by the crusade to rewrite the whole Yahoo world in ASP.NET. I find it really sad that Yahoo is going to be killed.
One of the Internet pioneers, the only old giant still alive and making good products. Yes, it suffered from mismanagement by Terry Semel but hey, shit happens. They can survive it, I hope this hostile bid is also the case.
Folks get rid of your MSFT and YHOO stock if the transaction goes through.
