We're coming up on release day for the consumer/public release of Vista -- tomorrow! I came across a few interesting articles that, not surprisingly, interview several groups who feel Vista violates EU laws and want its release delayed. One interesting quote I saw:
It said Microsoft's XAML markup language was "positioned to replace
HTML", the industry standard for publishing documents on the Internet.
XAML would be dependent on Windows, and discriminatory against systems
such as Linux, the group said.
I think a statement like this is without any real understanding of WPF and .NET. I thought for awhile about coming up with a response, but the whole statement is just to silly to warrant one.
