Desperate Yahoo Clings To Google ; Microsoft Pees On Deal

jerryyang4.jpgYahoo's last-ditch effort to fend off Microsoft's takeover bid: A deal to test Google's (GOOG) ads on some of its search pages.

I agree, I think it's about time for somebody to step up and offer a new OS alternative for consumers. Linux had its shot and just couldn't take off with regular customers. Google is market savvy enough not to make the same mistake and would package it and advertise it better. One can always dream :)
