Yes - they'll do that until everyone is connected ... then suddenly,
everywhere you go, you'll start to see things like:

"Access to this feature requires additional features supported only by MS
Passport - click here to upgrade your existing account - for FREE!"

wow... MS is on the warpath...

they're supposedly opening up their .Net auth system to allow other,
non-Passport, auth systems, such as from AOL or Yahoo... they would be
100% compatible with each other, so Yahoo Auth users could use Yahoo to
access Hotmail and other MSN services...
