Could it be that Microsoft will acquire WordPress?

I have to agree with the first comment on the page.

I don't like this. The big company are slowly acquiring all the good free stuffs then we will be left with nothing.
And to that I say that is how the government is gaining control over the Internet.

I watched a show on this recently, and one of the speakers on the show mentioned that back when radio was new, no one said it would be controlled.
