writes "Perhaps looking to further weaken the U.S. Gov't
anti-trust case with another MegaMerger/Deal Microsoft is
in talks with AT&T to sell AT&T MSN and other Microsoft media properties, possibly in exchange
for cash and Windows NT promotion. If the
deal goes though it would make AT&T's WorldNet the second
largest ISP, second only to AOL, and allow Microsoft to dump some yet-to-be-profitable projects. "
Apparently, the deal
is not going through. Funny thing-AT&T considers the talks to be done, while MS considers the talks to be "on-going".
