It was honest criticism. I expected something revolutionary and I got something that is insignificantly different from the APIs I use on a daily basis. I'm sure Java users would be similarly unimpressed if I announced a brand spanking new revolutionary API for parsing XML only for it to turn out to be SAX (which would be brand spanking new in the context of the .NET framework).

	If it's so bad and .NET is so much better than JAVA (tm), why waste so
	many harsh words convincing us?
	PS. I still can't post to the list. I would appreciate your forwarding
	this message.
