of the nose at OS/2. Microsoft wants very much to be the
"information superhighway" company. There have already been serious
talks with several banks to provide online services with MS products
as the front-end. Think how Quicken could fit into this picture.
This acquisition is a big step toward Microsoft domination of
the consumer online market.
