Rumor: Microsoft buying Logitech

Reuters is reporting that Microsoft may be interested in purchasing Logitech. If true this could be another one of those big "Holy Sh!t" acquisitions that seem to be popping up lately (see EA buying Pandemic/Bioware and the Vivendi/Activision deal).  The move makes some sense for Microsoft as they would instantly become the #1 peripheral maker on the market but I'm not sure Microsoft would want to deal with the anti-trust regulations they would have to deal with along with what Microsoft would do with with their existing hardware line (which cranks out some pretty good products).
