So Yahoo acquires Konfabulator. Konfab will lead Yahoo's open source initiative starting with the use of Widgets on your desktop (check it out very cool). On the other hand Microsoft is going after a patent acquisition spree because Bill Said So. The DNA of the company (Yahoo) is so radically different from the geeks at Microsoft, and not just from the basic open source perspective. Compare the two initiatives and you'll see the core of the Yahoo philosophy is to master edge competencies beyond the core, a pure brain play. The Microsoft approach is far more Soviet in it's steamroller approach, purely brawn.
