People are talking about a rumour that Microsoft has made an offer on Linden Lab.
Funny as that might seem on the face of it, a small number of Linden Lab staff are today spreading the story that Linden Lab is now entertaining offers for sale, and that Microsoft has actually presented one.
For Microsoft’s part, I doubt that it could care less about Linden Lab, but might be willing to make an offer to stop certain competitors making that purchase.
As yet, there isn’t any confirmation from Linden Lab as to whether the information being given by its staff is correct.
Update: Linden Lab responded to my query, and has declined to proffer any confirmation or denial.
Another update: Two Labbers say that there was an offer – which was rejected – but that they don’t believe it to have been from Microsoft.
