"I'd love to see Microsoft make an investment in making Windows
apps run smoothly on Linux."
"It would take a big headache off my list. It would allow my
development team to focus on what we do best, building new servers
and workstation interfaces for web publishing."
"We're working towards a Linux version of our software, but what

did this for us."
"I see it as the logical next step after SOAP. The networking
interface is open now. No undocumented APIs, open sockets between
apps. This is why SOAP is so important."
