Slashdot | Google v. Microsoft:
A slashdot posting about the possible search engine war coming up if Microsoft decides to take a bite at the this market. Here is quote from a posting that seems to me exacly what is going to happen:
"If Microsoft makes typing in 'www.google.com' a chore, no one will use it and M$ will have won. All they have to do is use some strategy in placing their search links. Put a search link on every Microsoft web page. Put one on the taskbar in Windows. Put one on the start menu. Put one on the IE menu, and lastly, redirect all entries in the URL bar to MSN search if it isn't a valid URL."
The only thing to add to this will be the lawsuit by Google and another anti-competition trial.
