Microsoft's bid for Fast Search and Transfer (good move)

It's a good move for the monopoly, err, dominant player

I don't have enough time to fully discuss this but Microsoft's bid for Fast Search & Transfer is a smart move. Having a high-quality search engine built into Windows server and Sharepoint will lock users further in and keep Google out of the enterprise. Search has always been a weak point for MS and Fast makes a good product.

It will also be interesting to see how this fits into Microsoft's Live shenanigans.

Alfresco CEO John Newton provides more color here. And Matt Asay asked what happens to the Fast OEM users?
