I like this. IBM and MSFT fight it out
over supply chain management software.
I don't really understand the article,
it describes IBM's approach as using its
WebSphere application server and Microsoft's
as using XML. I don't really see the two
as incompatible.


Some good Gates quotes:

Talk about dancing on the grave:
"Hee, hee", [Gates] quipped. "Whatever happened
to Netscape?"

"XML schema are not tied to any computer language,"
Gates said, "so the entire industry, everyone,
can take advantage of it."

Gawd, I wish I could be as smart.
