Microsoft will have to improve their image to even get a foot in the door with me. I only use their products under sufferance.

No doubt they will, I would imagine that the Yahoo name is why they bought the company, to divert people's attention from the Microsoft name which suffers from a poor image problem.

I would like to see them slim down to the basics, and focus on their OS, before wasting resources on other things.

Except then MSNBCYahoo! would have to get rid of their "corporate bad guys" moniker to be able to compete with Google, the darling child of the dotcom revolution. Google and YouTube are modern day rags to riches stories, Microsoft is the Evil Empire and Yahoo! is the retarded cousin.
