    Thumbs up Best quote yet

    ...and one to circulate widely, if you want to ensure MS don't get Yahoo!:

    "
    Cambiar Investors is one Microsoft shareholder that liquidated its holdings after the Yahoo buyout bid news.

    "We...liquidated on the news," said Brian Barish, Cambiar president. "Microsoft knows even less about the Internet than Yahoo. I can't see how they can make the business better."

    A few analysts on future of Zimbra i MS deal goes though.

    "Zimbra could be divested by Microsoft if it succeeds in its unfolding bid to acquire Yahoo, a banker and two analysts in the space told mergermarket.

    Yahoo bought Zimbra for USD 350m in September for its open source collaboration software. The acquisition was seen by many as a counter to Google’s developing suite of online collaboration-oriented applications, such as Google Spreadsheets.

    Yet that same strategic position may undercut its value for Microsoft, whose own mail, instant messaging and office applications fill a similar niche, said a banker familiar with Yahoo’s strategy. That could lead to a sale, he said.

    Buyers could include IBM, SAP, EMC, Oracle, Salesforce.com or Novell, said IDC analyst Mark Levitt. Sun Microsystems could also be interested, said a second analyst."

    "With Zimbra being an open source competitor to Microsoft technologies, Kusnetzky said a quick death could also be in its future. ”I would see them more squashing it than trying to sell it to someone and thus create a competitor to its own Office products,” he said."


    Sun or Red Hat would be my choices. However, I really doubt MS would sell Zimbra. Qick death is a nice phrase

    I guess one thing we could hope for is that the government would require MS to divest Zimbra out before allowing the sale to go through. I know that AT&T is purchasing the cell phone company that provides us our Blackberry service and the government won't allow AT&T to buy our market since they are already here.

    So the government told them they have to divest our market first. So AT&T and Verizion are swapping some markets in order to allow the sale to go through. Verizion is in the same boat with another market and that is the market that they are swapping with AT&T.
