Hello everyone,

since I've read about the M$ offer to buy Yahoo in the newspapers on 
saturday I'm wondering whether this will be a threat or a chance for 

Knowing what happened when M$ bought Hotmail - FreeBSD was gradually 
replaced by Windows - I fear that one very famous commercial user (and 
sponsor?) of FreeBSD will move away from FreeBSD.

What do you think and expect?

Best regards
