The real question for me is will OV go for portals only, or will there be a dedicated search destination, taking it up with Google?
From the Article:
Overture said it will utilize both the FAST and AltaVista sites to advance the company's product development process. The company will use FAST's technology showcase site, AlltheWeb.com, to test and experiment with advanced approaches in search. At the same time, the company will use the AltaVista.com site, which operates on a larger scale, to refine implementations for new products and improve presentation to consumers.
Comparing it to google, that makes Alltheweb as www2 and www3 and AV as www. Or something along those lines...
