thundara: Honestly, if Microsoft bought Facebook with the intention of OS-level integration, I'd probably start searching deep into my pockets for money to buy OS X or a nice OSS computer setup. The problem with social media integration is that it transforms the "cloud" from just being a very easy-to-use backup solution to pushing for me to expose my personal details in a structured way that the company can take advantage of.

Acquiring Facebook would completely ignore whether the user wants that amount of integration, and especially considering that they have been constantly dragging their heels and generating controversy over privacy issues.
