Read the whole thing:brokenheart:Google Inc., going public I can handle, but Google being wed to Microsoft -- Microsoft must be delusional to think that Google would Microsoft themselves! Google Inc., has no need of Microsoft. Microsoft may think they need Google. But you believe this, to marry the two together would be to weaken both brands, kill off Google and open the way for a new contender to the search king. Besides myself, there are millions of people who do not purposely buy Microsoft products. There is a growing number of people who purchase or acquire Lindows, Red Hat, Debian, Slackware, Ximian and more, because they do not like the Microsoft domination. These people are the primary users of Google -- the heavy hitters that make Google money.
