Microsoft to buy Yahoo?

Posted 14 years ago by Adam Gautsch

Microsoft offers to buy Yahoo for $44 billion. I'm fine with that as long as they don't muck with Yahoo mail and Flickr.

I agree. I don't use Yahoo mail that much. Mainly use it for a junk account but I do use Flickr (before it was acquired by Yahoo - one of their better decisions) and I have also been using Yahoo Groups since it was called, OneList back in the 90's and also before it was acquired. Both have been handled fairly well. and tied pretty good to the Yahoo brand.

I like Windows and Office just fine but I have never been a big fan of Microsoft's Internet ventures. Neither am I a big fan of Apple's Internet ventures (except for iTunes).

If anything I would hope if they were a bought that Yahoo would be a division of MS and not just rolled into the MS web portal.

I think Microsoft does a lot of things well, the internet is not one of them.

I can't really comment... but let's just say Yahoo wouldn't have been my pick.
