Microsoft Owns Yahoo?
February 18, 2008
Windows Server 2008 and IIS7 will easily be able to host all of Yahoo’s software and services.
The real problem with this shot gun marriage is for Microsoft to retain Yahoo’s audience. I believe one third of Yahoo users like me also use MSN and Windows Live services. Another third disdain everything Microsoft does and they discovered Google back in the day when it was Yahoo’s search provider. As for the the last third, three years from now when you tell them that Microsoft owns Yahoo they’ll look at you dumbfounded.
