Well, the only good that can come is that ABC-Disney Merge with Microsoft and the Justice department makes Gates wear Mickey Ears on his walk to prison.

ala the NYTimes:

he Walt Disney Company will introduce a new dial-up Internet access service aimed at families with children that is a customized version of Microsoft's MSN. Michael D. Eisner, Disney's chief executive, announced the new service in a surprise appearance on a stage set up by Microsoft in Central Park yesterday to start a $300 million marketing blitz for the next version of MSN.

Microsoft is taking aim at AOL Time Warner's America Online service, and an association with Mickey Mouse, the Lion King and Winnie the Pooh is meant to appeal to AOL's mainstream audience.
