Rumour: Microsoft to buy Second Life - Linden Labs goes on sale as UK office shuts down, quietly | TechEye



I just noticed this rumor.

Rumour: Microsoft to buy Second Life - Linden Labs goes on sale as UK office shuts down, quietly | TechEye

My initial take:  It is too soon, so I say not yet. Entertaining people at Microsoft is not "making a bid". I am checking some sources and will report if I hear anything.

On the other hand, Second Life will never be as inexpensive to buy as it is right now.  And I did put a substantial probability to something like this happening in my 2010 predictions.

Update from Eddi:  Some people I know at Microsoft are highly skeptical and doubt that this will happen.
