Jim Allchin on XML

Allchin is group vice president at Microsoft. He is very bullish on XML and says so in this News.com interview: “People love this XML Web services stuff–I mean they really love it. It’s really awesome. Today, you have a home page; and you may think you’ve got some customization, but it’s really pretty weak. Weak in the sense that somebody else has designed what areas of the screen you can put things and what things you can choose–like weather can go in this area, and you have to add stock quotes in this particular area–when you could build it yourself, choosing from any of a myriad of sites, and build your own portal, if you will.”
