   RE: [xml-dev] Silver Bullets and Partial Solutions

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Or just hire the Lone Ranger.  He has his own silver 
mine and apparently Tonto is a wizard at turning 
out silver bullets.  I don't believe in werewolves 
but there are lots of bad guys in the wild west of 
the Internet business world.

That is the short form of how the bewildering set of 
partial, worse is better, solutions leads us to 
cite MS systems in contracts.  No one makes money 
making core solutions (silver bullets) unless they 
make a lot of them and sell them in flat pack or bulk. 

I don't need a freakin' worse solution; I need a 
reliable one that is secure from the bad guys.

XML is about providing the infrastructure to produce, buy, and sell 
the silver and bullet molds.  If you've got werewolves in your local 
haunted forest, you are a lot better off if you can buy silver and 
bullet molds at quickly and economically than if you have to prospect 
for the silver, mine it, refine it, and mold it into bullets all by
