"Abrams argued that Microsoft is not the cathedral when it comes
to ASP.NET AJAX but is quite transparent. Furthermore, he stated
that most successful open source efforts are backed by a commercial

cathedral nor bazaar are the same in the AJAX Web space; rather
there is a continuum that reaches across space."
