What would it be like if Microsoft had bought Google in the early days?
Let's say Microsoft had bought Google in 1999 or 2000, 2 years after the company launched itself? Would that have not been a Bargain for Microsoft? How could Microsoft not have seen that Search engine could have been a valuable bet in the future with other companys like AltaVista, Duckduckgo, Yahoo all jumping in? Or they could have launched Bing then, I've heard of MSN or Windows Live search but Microsoft obviously didn't focus much on it and ended up closing it.
