OK Microsoft, things have been going well. Don’t screw it up now.

There are reports that private-equity firm Silver Lake Partners is working with one of its investors, the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, and Microsoft Corp. to put together a proposal to buy Yahoo Inc., people familiar with the matter said.

Under the proposal being discussed, Microsoft would put up several billion dollars of funding, with additional financing being arranged by banks.

There has been talk about this before but my questions is.. why?

What in the heck does Yahoo add to Microsoft at this point?
