Yahoo's must-keep stars

What's behind Microsoft's $44.6 billion hostile bid for Yahoo? If you ask Microsoft, it's the talent. Here are five Yahoos at the center of the takeover battle.

Susan Decker:

Since joining Yahoo in 2000, Decker, a former Wall Street analyst, has earned respect for her candor. She's also credited with transforming Yahoo from a seller of advertising on its own site to an ad player across the web and driving Yahoo's acquisition of Right Media, an online marketplace for advertisers. Assuming Microsoft could persuade her to stay, Greg Sterling of technology research firm Sterling Market Intelligence, says it would be a good move for the Redmond-based company to retain Decker.
