Microsoft’s failed buyout bid for Yahoo! – Some musings

  • Was Microsoft really interested in buying Yahoo! ?
  • Did Jerry Yang do the right thing by rebuffing Ballmer ?
  • Will the Yahoo! investors remain quiet even after losing out on the deal ?
  • Does Microsoft realise they could/can never integrate Yahoo into their own ?
  • Would the merger have been a good thing for Zimbra users ?
  • Did Microsoft lose out on it’s only chance of becoming a contributor to Open Source ?
  • Would projects like Hadoop, YUI, Zimbra died a premature death under the Microsoft’s management ?
  • Seemingly unrelated events influence one’s personal and professional lives in ways that can not be even imagined.
