The MS/Yahoo! thing

posted at 21:57 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid/geek

Gruber of Daring Fireball talks about exactly what I was scratching my head about when I heard this news.

I was hoping that some Yahoo! OSS goodness might rub off on MS, but it just ain’t gonna happen. I use both OSS stuff (PHP, JS libraries etc) and MS stuff (, Visual Studio, etc) in my day-to-day and they are just completely different beasts. To try to cram the two together in the MicroHoo deal would result in a thing that no one wants to see. MS will kill what it can’t ignore and treat the rest like red-headed stepchildren.
