Microsoft has always used their OS monopoly to dominate application and the internet market. However, AOL is a bigger fish for Microsoft to fry compared to the smaller companies it had to deal with in its past wars.
A few things in AOL\'s favor are 1)It gets the support of the Mozilla community which has grown in the last couple of years. (Talking about that, how many people are involved in Mozilla actually?) 2)Microsoft is battling on too many fronts-Sun, Oracle, Real Networks, Linux community, Sony to name a few.
In any case, this will be the best thing that happens to the Mozilla community and to the Internet as a whole. Hurray!!
