Certainly. I bring Cairo up, not to criticize, I thought it was
fantastically visionary at the time, and was let down when it got cancelled.
My point is more that I bet  MS will jump into 'SW' activities pretty fast
as soon as a commercial interest develops. In the meantime who knows what is
going on behind the scenes, paricularly in the MSR labs -- I suspect that
there is at least some Description Logic going on somewhere. I know there is
a fair amount of Bayesian analysis being done in there somewhere, so I would
hardly expect "Web Services" to be the last word coming out of Redmond.

What is the point then? Just do it. Who needs this "WS-I" acronym? Less hype
and more code is always a good thing.
