Microsoft "Microsoft is putting some meat on the bones of its plan to make information that's stuck in databases reachable with the same standards used to retrieve Web pages. At its Mix conference this week, Microsoft touted an interface called the Open Data Protocol, or OData. Specifically, the company announced an OData software developer kit to let programmers more easily use it and said it wants to standardize OData. What fortuitous timing. Microsoft listed the Internet Engineering Task Force and World Wide Web Constortium as groups where it would like to see this standardization, and the latter of these two has new management eager to tackle new projects."

People here tend to ignore anything from Microsoft, they just screw here and there.

Apple says its Mac O$ X is the most advanced OS, so why my Tiger still haven't got JDK 6? Java is about cross-platform, and Apple breaks that by forcing user to upgrade to the crappy new *slow* leopard to get JDK 6 (which is free on Windows/ Linux).

People here simply ignore the fact that vendors like Microsoft want to provide tools to attract developers to use its own technologies, it is business strategy.
