Microsoft "Ultimately, we want to be able to securely make transactions without giving third parties the ability to masquerade as us; we want to be able to visit websites and make purchases without those sites being able to track us or combine different pieces of information to draw a more complete picture of us; we want to be able to be able to disclose some information about ourselves, but not everything. The U-Prove framework, released as a CTP today by Microsoft, aims to solve these problems."

My problem is that they don't contribute to solve the problem by supporting the initiatives already in place. We already have OpenID and OAuth for open and cross-"network" identification and authentication. Instead of writing *yet another* authentication and identification framework, why not contribute to and/or use those instead? They're solving a problem that doesn't exist.

Because they are not Communists? Competition is good. We have single place where to buy alcohol(over 5%) but that hasn't stop alcoholism and all the other problems, instead it has created new problem called monopoly.
