Let's start here... http://www.microsoft.com/net/whatis.asp

If you go to MSN and sign up with Passport, this is the begining. Passport is like Yahoo! Groups where you can join even if you are not part of the Yahoo! network (ie...you don't need a Yahoo! ID).

From what I understand Microsoft is trying to create (at the user level) what Yahoo! has been working on from the start. One ID, One password, Wallet, etc.

I spent some time at MSN this weekend (it's been a while since I last did) and I was surprised and worried. MSN has made HUGE IMPROVEMENTS to the site. Mostly they are copying what Yahoo! has had for a while. But, if I was new to the net I would be happy with what MSN is offering. With the launch of Windows XP I am sure MSN will gain a good number of new users.

The time is soon approaching where Yahoo! will have to choose a friend, and what the friendship will be based on. Maybe we will find out in a few weeks when Mr. Semel makes his comments.

Leugy!
