Author: JT Smith

From The Register: "Today's Hailstorm announcement was cultivated to gain maximum favourable
publicity for Microsoft, but Redmond's concessions amount to nothing it hasn't
already conceded, in one form or another.

project - interpret the "concessions" as extending the requirement for Microsoft's
partners to include proprietary technology in their .NET compliant web services.

So what was new, today?"
