Microsoft and Yahoo, Sitting in a Tree

Gruber posted some interesting commentary on the supposed Microsoft-Yahoo acquisition. Here's the bit I found most interesting:

Google writes a ton of their own code and tools, but they do it using open source languages, databases, and operating systems.

That’s what Yahoo does, too. In fact, that’s what most web companies do. Web companies built on Microsoft technology are few and far between. When was the last time you saw a new hit web site developed using Microsoft’s web stack? This is what Paul Graham was talking about when he wrote that “Microsoft is dead” – there’s an entire generation of developers who are growing up without ever even considering Microsoft developer technologies.

Hello, Mercado? Anyone paying attention?
