Microsoft attempting to purchase Yahoo!

Microsoft has offered a bid of $44,600,000,000 to purchase Yahoo!  It
is said that this is one of the biggest takeovers in history, and The biggest in the technology sector.


My question is, what does this mean for the Internet?

Would Microsoft keep
Yahoo, or would it move everything over to its own type of systems?  Would Yahoo logins turn to
nothing but Microsoft Live IDs?  Will Flickr just become part of the Windows Life system?


It will be fascinating to watch where this goes.
