Worldcomm/UUNet makes a bid for MCI and BROOKS Fiber

Doesn't Bill Gates own some portion of the WC conglomerate?

It sures smells like a BG thing.

Microsquish owns the desktop/Servers and WC owns the Internet/
Telecommunications, and Bill owns them both? Thrills, gotta
love the advances we would see then, mainly in price....

He used to own a sizeable chunk of UUNET, back before they got bought by
MFS and then Worldcom. His chunk these days probably isn't so sizeable any

Sizeable? ~17% was rather significant. Anyone know whether Microsoft's
stake was bought out or carried over when UU sold to MFS?
