There is a lot of talk going on that AOL will sell parts of its company to Microsoft.

According to an article published by Publicradio.org :

At the D8 conference, AOL chairman Tim Armstrong said that the company, which is currently using Google for search on its sites, is looking for a new search deal. Armstrong said he was negotiating with more than two potential partners (which is kind of weird because besides Google and Bing, who else would it be? Alta Vista?). But Nicholas Carlson of Silicon Valley Insider suspects that this is all just show before AOL sells out to Microsoft and pairs up with MSN. It’s rumor but it’s something to watch. AOL is far removed from the days where it dominated the internet but it still has millions of faithful subscribers. Migrate those people over to something with Microsoft’s software capabilities and you could have a pretty powerful entity.

Your thoughts? Will it happen?

Its possible.

Talk means nothing. There was talks about Disney buying EA, and that didn't happen.

It's Possible, they would radically redo AOL if they did, they might make it hip and cool again...

They've already bought out Yahoo!. I haven't seen any major differences (I don't use the site that often anyway), but if Microsoft wants to make a gamble with a website, AOL is probably one of the better ones (probably not the best) to make an investment in.

not sure you will ever see that happen but any thing is possible though considering AOL owns what is left of Netscape would this make Microsoft the winner in the browser battle after all or the monopoly the trust suits between them were supposedly trying to prevent...
