Jesse Berst Says that Communicator Won't Support XML!!!

Wednesday November 10th, 1999

Joel Caris writes in with the latest Berst burst of wisdom. Jesse Berst's new article at ZDNet's AnchorDesk is filled with such pearls as, "It now expects to ship beta of the 5.0 version of its browser suite next month... [a]nd without support for key Web technologies such as XML that IT managers and Web developers can get from IE."

Damn. And I was under the impression that the entire Mozilla application required XML to power its user-interface, and that it's XML support throughout the application was unparalleled. Silly me.

Be sure to vote in the poll on the article's page!

#30 Trial is far from over.

The M$ trial is far from over, in fact, it has received more incorrect media hype than Mozilla has.

The latest hoopla about M$'s trial was merely a 'finding of fact.... not a verdict. Same sort of hype surrounded 'finding of fact' regarding the Sun vs. M$'s JVM.

M$'s strategy appears to be that of appeal. Let a single judge screw things up and then take it to a multi-judge panel and get it overturned.

This happened in both the Sun vs. M$ JVM case and in the overruling of Jackson himself when the courts decreed that M$ had every right to integrate browsing functionality into their own operating system.

Let's get the facts straight, folks, and not get into a 'pot calling the kettle black' situation. :)
