Why does everyone make this seem like it is the death of Netscape?
It most definitely does not have to be. This deal could be a major help to Netscape, as long as AOL doesn't do something stupid. Why should AOL spend $4.2 bil and then destroy what it spent its money on? I think AOL will mostly allow Netscape to continue doing what it wants to. Plus, anything else would be infringing on the agreement with Sun.
