"While tech kingpins such as Microsoft and Oracle have rushed to
one-up each other in introducing Web-delivered software, Ximian is
doing work behind the scenes to make sure Web services can run on
the Linux and Unix operating systems."
"Ximian, an open-source software company formerly known as Helix
Code, believes it can help achieve Web services compatibility by
porting the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP)
distributed-computing protocol to the Gnome user interface for
Linux and Unix systems. Ximian and the Gnome project were both
launched by open-source evangelist Miguel de Icaza."
"The goal is to allow Web-delivered software--such as the
much-touted Microsoft.Net strategy--from different companies to
work on all operating systems, from Windows to Unix and Linux.
Ximian has dubbed its resulting technology "SOUP," not an acronym
but a play on the SOAP name."
