Sad to see AV going. It was my search engine of choice for a long time. In many ways they where pioneers. Google was able to copy them fast, and make progress to where they saw the future lying.
We all see it as history, but for Yahoo! It's a simple business move. AV.com is probably worth more if sold, than yahoo will make from AltaVista.
Yhoo needs to generate revenue from any stream it can. I guess this sale (if it happens) will look great in the accounts.
