Yahoo, Microsoft close to IM pact

Cnet News.com is reporting that:
Microsoft and Yahoo are close to a pact that would allow users of their respective instant messaging services to exchange messages with one another, a source told CNET News.com on Tuesday.
It is time IM operators allow interoperability. It will promote broader use of IM for text and voice conversations and help IM become mainstream communication tool via computers, cellphone and VoIP phones.

It is very likely that Google Talk may have created the need for this alliance. After all Google is the common rival here.
