So now with AOL’s Steve Case gone here are my predictions of what is going to happen:
AOL Time Warner would become Time Warner
Netscape Division which is hardly making any money is going to be shut down.
Suddenly AOL will be default software for RoadRunner, and a broadband super power.
Internet Explorer will be the default browser at AOL.
Mozilla will have another setback, (after KHTML/Safari)
Microsoft will finally win the access wars – just like it won the brower and desktop wars – its competitor AOL will shoot itself in the foot as the tight-wads from Sixth Avenue slowly kill the company in their attempt to make it a cable-content play. Well that is a while another story.
My View: Bill Gates is not only smart, his rivals are stupid.
