    from what i have read they are doing more of a partnership with Yahoo...MSN wants to have rights to several algorithm patents which Yahoo has owned since the beginings of search engines and Yahoo wants to have access to software and Windows branding rights when the new Windows Vista comes out which will automatically default all windows vista pc's search to either MSN or Yahoo while by passing Google all together unless the pc's owner manually changes it to use Google search.....currently G is trying to sue Microsoft for this lol......

    Google is buying the key employee's for now...Gates is not out...he has 4 times the capitol as Google...

    Once the 40% fraud rate hits the big city press...Google better have an operating system or something LARGE that is not SEARCH related or their publicly traded stock is going to take a hit...

    But don't get me wrong...them peoples at Google is smart

    The Monopoly issue could come up...but there is no "schoolyard rivalry" when it comes to <$>BILLIONS</$>

    People and companies sell out (Volcom/Henry Rollins/Urchin), that is why they are in business. If they didn't want to make money they'd be a .org or a non-profit with a 3rd rate website looking for a "donated website" from one of us.

    Go ahead Yahoo...sell it...Gates will expose the mass amounts of click fraud Google is showing on the books as revenue...and the BOOKS WILL LOOK COOKED. Enron anyone?

    Don't get me wrong...Google is still the little underdog that I have been cheering for for YEARS now...but there is gonna be a shake up...and B. Gates is the type cut throat shameless business man to do it.

    I would love to see this aquisition take place. I already feel that MSN is going to begin pushing Google pretty hard once IE7 is released. An aquisition like this might cripple Google, or at the very least get them to focus back on their search engine, which has been nothing but a disaster since jagger.

    Makes sense, but as this is not legally confirmed so I would say that this may not take place, although there is a possibility.

    My data is based on my companies monthly spending and click fraud tracking. 40% is the high end of fraud which is mostly in the Legal Division. Other divisions are lower...but only by 10-15%.

    Based on what?

    Google is monitoring desktop behavior with "Googe Desktop" and the big money is in OS...the tough thing is being a recognized brand accepted by all....RedHat isn't there yet...BSD isn't there...as practical as they are.

    Google OS would be a genius move...they already have the hearts of The People

    Based on the shear fact that the only way to become a major player in software is to attract the enterprise. I never see companies buying in to the "dneOS" (Do No Evil OS). They will not go for it for the very fact of cost of ownership would be too high - Migrations of software on 36,000 desktops is no small feat and Microsoft literally owns that realm. I work in the corporate software deployment area of enterprise desktop management and not once have we been asked to deploy a Google toolbar or desktop search - believe it or not, those things are bundled up with adware and smiley central types of things when analyzed in various enterprise groups so Google would have for themselves an uphill battle.

    If big G wants to take a run at MS, then I'm afraid they will be beaten handily. If they want to add value to their company and make more money for their shareholders, then they need to stick to what they are good at

    I see your point there and it is well supported. But you are in the box...so to speak. You are thinking of licensing software, enterprise versions, service packs, users etc...

    The future is a Web Based Operating Systems where there is no need to pay for a license but you will NEED Google to help your kid type a school paper...to Search...to listen to music.

    I agree with you, but the big money in software is the enterprise and without that, google will just be another linux

    This is assuming we have a 100% saturation rate on broadband .... a GLOBAL saturation rate

    The infastructure we have now does not support this and will not for years

    The Enterprise has this kind of saturation in terms of users with broadband - but then again, they are stuck in Bill's pocket - at least for a while
