The real point is, that Microsoft Filed FTC filings on the "Google buyout of Double Click" as being a Sherman Act violation.

The hypocrisy of them trying to buy Yahoo! is far more of a "Sherman act violation", than the Google Double click thing.

And when I meant in a dieing phase... I meant it is obvious Double Click was WAY past its prime and not able to keep up.

Yahoo! is just having a Mid-Life crisis right now, just like Hotmail has since Microsoft bought it. Remember when they(MS) first tried to change out the BSD architecture and replace it with Windows based? What a "boondoggle"... ha!

I still hear rumors that Hotmail runs on a BSD for some critical functions, though these are just scuttle, I'd suppose.
