Microsoft and XML

Tuesday October 13th, 1998

A article describes Microsoft's "betting the farm" on XML. You can read the article here.

My take: XML is already being used to give an air of standards compliance to utterly proprietary systems. See "ColdFusion" as an example of this. I expect Microsoft to use this ability to give new and old proprietary systems the guise of standards compliance to further their agenda of controlling the standards process.
