PDC WebData XML Wrapup - XML Everywhere
XML was everywhere at PDC, even if you didn't notice it. Bill Gates said in his keynote something like In .Net V1, we put in XML at the surface, with 2.0, Windows Vista and Office 12, we are putting XML at the core of all our products, not only for interop but also in our file formats. By one count, he used the term "XML" 37 times in his 1 hour presentation.
The WebData XML team showed several different technologies at PDC.
