But it still boiles down to Microshaft...doesn't matter if it's a publicy traded company or not. Like you said...money grubbing morons who not only want value, but power. Microshaft wants power. Nothing less. They tried to do it with IE and other MS only apps forcing it down our throats. There's nothing wrong with being the best or having the best product that everyone wants and putting companies out of business because people want your product not theirs, But doing so by hostile takeover just because you can makes you an A**hole. Your right though, he should have kept control of 51% and they wouldn't be in this fight.

I think it's just plain shi**y how micoshaft is playing this. I know they offered to buy but hell people, this is AMERICA! You shouldn't have to sell your company just cause  a**holes like microshaft and Icahn want it! As I see it...We will have only 3 choices in the world for PC computing in the future....Microshaft, Intel, and Nvidia. Maybe they'll have a competition for the best name for the company and give away a free t-shirt...wait, um, microshaft will still charge 39.95 for shipping. My vote is......MicroNvidtel.....

Publicly traded companies are at the mercy of money grubbing share holders who want value for there shares.  If Yahoo! didn't want to play this they shouldn't have gone public or Yang should have made sure he controlled 51% of the stock.
