More Microsoft-Yahoo News (And Some Other Stuff)

Let's not even pretend that there's going to be a bigger story this week (or maybe this year). Let's just get right to some links:

Microsoft's earnings per share would -- get this -- break even for the next couple of years if the Yahoo deal goes through.

Congress would look into the deal, too, according to one intrepid news source. Oh, really? A $46 billion deal involving Microsoft might get some attention from Congress? In other news, Bill Gates has a lot of money. (Sorry, we're still kind of bitter here about the Super Bowl.)

And here's some other non-Yahoo stuff worth reading but not necessarily expounding upon:

Linus Torvalds says that Microsoft isn't likely to launch those Linux patent suits.

And Gartner's top-ranked business intelligence vendor in terms of "ability to execute?" It's based in Redmond!
