    if the two merge i forsee a downgrade in googles services and quality.

    I use google as it is reliable and i can always find what i need in the first page of results without ad investations.

    Spammers next time you spam me consider the implications:
    (1) that you will be persuaded by me(in a legitimate mannor)
    (2)It is worthless to you, when i have finished

    Funny how microslop are buying companies that use linux servers, guess they don't have much confidence in their own products

    If they merge, or sell, it will suck....

    But if you had a chance for 10 Billion, I believe all of us would sell....

    Ah, but it's not the entire google that the question is about, really. Google have a long time been planning to make 25% public, not the entire company.

    o crud.
    if the two merge i forsee a downgrade in googles services and quality
    thats what i thought exactly...

    but... if they do merge, or partner hopefully microsoft woulnd destroy google, hopefully google would continue as the way it goes- which makes it such a successful search engine.
