Why does everyone think this is a bad thing? I honestly rather it be M$ than FB or Google that bought them.
LinkedIn had planned to host a live streaming of the WWDC 2016 keynote from its offices in San Francisco. But Monday morning, the official page for the watch party was updated to say that the event was canceled.
Though the page didn't specifically reference Microsoft's buyout of LinkedIn, visitors were told to visit the official LinkedIn press information site "for more information." Microsoft and LinkedIn announced the $26.2 billion purchase earlier Monday.
"We hope you are able to find alternative accommodations and apologize for any inconvenience," the site reads.

I just don't understand the purchase at that ridiculous valuation. I'm interested in seeing what they do with it though.

Exactly, see what they did with Minecraft!, I am sure they have some good ideas.

I can just see MS changing LinkedIn premium membership red X to accept.

I was that wealthy, I would value my independence more than a couple of extra billion in the bank.

I just wish we had a hint, I'd buy some LinkedIn shares before the news. That was a huge pop yesterday, made some people rich.
