This is what I wrote originally about the MS-Yahoo deal (which sadly has been called off):
As a Linux fan, I honestly can't wait for this deal to go through.
Microsoft will eviscerate Yahoo, turning away all the open source fans who work there and lamely attempting to port all the server-side software to Windows (that worked out well for Hotmail). And they'll have $44bn less cash in the bank to bribe politicians and standards bodies.
Bring it on, please.
