Microsoft seen as lead suitor for AOL


Microsoft Corp., the world's largest software maker, has emerged as the lead suitor for a stake in Time Warner Inc.'s Internet unit America Online, The New York Times reported Monday.

If Microsoft were to complete a deal, it would fold its MSN Internet service into a venture with AOL, the newspaper said.
