Interesting. Too bad her comment is the equivalent of a sound bite with no substance at all. I'd be curious to know why she things moving to XML from proprietary binary formats is a setback as opposed to a step forward. Maybe this is just Sun's way of justifying pushing replacing the XML in XML Web Services with ASN.1 
Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the Earth, minus 40% inheritance tax.

"The world has gone crazy with XML and then web services; SOAP and UDDI are
getting enormous attention, and, yet, from a software engineering
standpoint, they seem to me a setback rather then a step forward.
We now have a generation of young programmers who think of software in terms
of square brackets. An enormous mess of XML documents that are now being
created by enterprises at an alarming rate will be haunting our industry for
decades. With all that excitement, no one seems to have the slightest
interest in basic computer science."
