Wikimedia to be hosted by Yahoo!

Although a month ago, Google has made an offer to host Wikimedia, the site which manages Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, it has been announced that it is now Yahoo! instead of Google which will be hosting Wikipedia following an agreement with each other.

To be honest, I'd prefer if Google was hosting Wikimedia, but now Yahoo! seems to be fighting back strongly against Google with this, and it's acquisition of Flickr recently.
