Microsoft wants to buy FAST

Microsoft has offered to buy FAST. See press release from Microsoft. This is said not to influence business for FAST customers, but it is very likely that the major focus for FAST ESP will shift from Linux to Windows and from Java-based to “other” technologies.

Nobody knows exactly yet but we all hope that Microsoft (if allowed to acquire FAST) will continue to support FAST ESP on all major Operating Systems going forward.
