And that one's not "commercial"? Hmm ... what about all the
operating systems that Microsoft doesn't monopolize? I hope
you're not saying they will never want XML support!
I suspect you really meant to say that core XML infrastructure
(parser, DOM, etc) was not an area where application developers
would ever want to spend big bucks. I think that's true. But
folk will still need rock-solid, and 100% conformant, parsers
along with such tool support.
