"Dubbed Microsoft.Net, the initiative is a framework that uses
the industry standard extensible markup language (XML) as the
language of communication between software applications. The idea
is to allow software developers to design Web sites that can "talk"
with one another. If adopted by enough Internet sites, Mr. Clegg
said, that would theoretically mean consumers wouldn't have to
visit multiple sites to arrange a vacation, for example."
"When asked how Corel's version of the free Linux system would
fit into the Microsoft.Net strategy, Mr. Clegg said, 'You have to
ask Corel how they see that fitting.'"
"Steve Ballmer, Microsoft Corp.'s chief executive officer, has
said the company has no plans to modify its word processing and
spreadsheet software to run on Linux."
