Why would they need crediting when the Web Services era hasn't even begun yet? EASIer? Why is it "easier" for developers? Is this how Visual Basic was "easier" for programmers?


This is what I'm supposing, .NET is just like Visual Basic is to programming except it's in terms of Web Services. It can't scale up in itself and in terms of people who will use it. These are the same people that thought there should be a computer in Every Home to make life Easier for the inhabitants.


Now everything for Microsoft is geared toward the mother OS but now the vision of the mother OS wants to encompass the world. How they will cash in on this scheme I don't know ..but I know one thing.. they're objective is to cash in on this scheme.



This is just Miguel's way of joining the Hailstorm express...

Yeah, maybe to build instant-messaging applications.
