About the 'Microsoft should buy Palm' stories

There have been a few stories floating around lately positing that Microsoft should gobble up Palm. And we couldn't agree with our man Dieter Bohn more when he says no. Hail no. And Dieter's gone and summed things up over at Precentral.net. Were we going to boil it down to two sentences, we'd choose these:

I'm still optimistic that Microsoft will be resurgent in the mobile space next year, but they're going to do it their way. Trying to do it Palm's way is a flat-out bad idea.

Give it a read. Then head back over here and let us know what you think in the comments.
