As long as Microsoft doesn't neuter flickr (I don't use any other Yahoo or Microsoft services) I am fine with them buying Yahoo! Not that Microsoft cares what I think :-) !
Neutering to me would include:
- forcing us to use the Microsoft Live ID instead of my Yahoo ID
- converting flickr to .NET or to using some other non open source system other than LAMP
- Social Media Co - Yahoo Mail + Hotmail + flickr + delicious + MSN, etc
- Windows Co - Windows XP, Vista and Mobile
- Office Co - Word et al
- Xbox Co - gaming
