    Hi Mike,

    The title of the article is misleading. The article is about the cost of
    using Microsoft's Hailstorm services, not .NET itself. If you look at comments
    after the article you'll see a lot of people were confused by it. I contacted
    Wylie Wong, the author of the article and exchanged e-mails with him. I
    don't have them in front of me (they're at work, I'm at home) but he agreed
    and explained that titles are not written by the author. Instead, titles
    are written by an editor. (For all I know, the editor is journalism major
    and knows nothing about technology.) Wylie told me he forwarded my e-mails
    to the editorial staff at ZDNET but as far as I know, they have not issued
    a correction. BTW, this is not the first time ZDNET has published a technically
    inaccurate article about .NET.

    - Jim

    Mike: .NET My Services is *a* Web Service. Not all Web Services are My
    Services. There is no charge for creating or deploying Web Services.

    The very first post on the page states....

    Misleading title. It's not a charge to "develop" applications, it's a charge
    to imbed functionality built by MS (i.e. calendar) into your apps. This is
    no different than paying a license fee for a third-party component.

    What's the difference? .NET is about web services. Period.

    Congrats Mike, you've outdone yourself. All I can do is sit and shake my

    I suggest you read Patrick Meader's December EdNote, and then
    reconsider such a cheeky riposte! .NET *is* web services web services
    web services all the way. Apart from being a Java killer, that's why
    .NET was invented. The whole point of .NET is to deliver web services,
    to enable them, to earn money from them, to aid in writing them.
    Microsoft naturally wants to participate by earning money distributing
    web services or acting as honest broker between other parties who want
    to distribute, write, or consume them, and thereby MS gets money from
    that source, too. Nothing wrong with this -- if you enjoy being part
    of a grand hegemony.

    I don't see where he said that ".net is about web services. Period"; but
    no matter, if he had he'd be wrong.

    However he doesn't have the tunnel-vision you're suffering from, which is
    why in the December issue you will that he published this GuestOp by yours
    truely:

    >.NET *is* web services web services web services all the way.



    Sorry Mike, but that is bullshit plain and simple. I venture to guess
    that I have much more insight into this issue than you do, since I've been
    writing .net code for over a year and only played with web services for a
    few days total. You, otoh, apparently haven't even bothered installing
    ..net or reading the documentation.

    Re: Web Services

    OK, I just read the editororial. So what. He basically states that .NET and
    VS.NET can build Web Services. Well there's some news. Nowhere does he state
    that ".NET is about web services. Period." because Patrick is smart enough
    to know better. Web Services are but one aspect of .NET. Windows Forms, for
    example, are one of the best parts of .NET. Blows what can be done with VB6
    away and leaves it in the dust. Web Services are getting the press lately,
    hence the fact that Patrick would do an editorial on it (he is part of the
    press your know. Honest. He had a press pass at PDC.). I think if you go
    back an really read the editorial you will see that it's purpose is to
    announce a new column about Web Services (one of many subjects regarding
    ..NET).

    I guess all I can do is sit and shake my head some more....

    It appears that Mike is so caught up in his zealous campaign that he fails
    to recognize how wrong he is.

    And you can't take anyone serious unless they have rolled up their sleeves
    and tried this stuff. If after doing that he can honestly say he doesn't see
    the benefits, then fine. Until then he is doing nothing but spouting
    worthless FUD...

    Will Windows Forms make money in their own right? Will SOAP make money
    in its own right? What about XML? HTML? All these re-hashed
    "innovations" will serve one purpose, and that is to produce, deliver,
    and consume web services within a .NET world controlled, if possible,
    by Microsoft. That's what they're doing it for. To make money. They're
    not going to make money by selling VB.NET, C#, or the .NET framework
    to a few thousand (okay, so it's Sunday, I'm feeling generous)
    programmers. (After all, they'll be giving away the .NET framework
    soon enough with the next OS or the one after.) Those kinds of sums
    from the developer community are miniscule. No, they will get their
    money from the web services that millions upon millions of consumers
    will buy. The consumers will buy web services on the fly for one-off
    use, or by subscription for longer term, pre-planned use -- like
    stopping taking the anti-baby pill in good time if you decide to get
    pregnant. This way lies the road to riches, and every new baby will
    get a Passport. Eventually, everything you do on a personal computer,
    and maybe even in the mainframe world, too, will be a web service of
    one kind or another. Ideally, if I don Microsoft's rose-tinted
    spectacles for a moment, each and every transaction between any two
    computers on the planet will involve a web service of some kind and
    that web service will trickle micropayments to Microsoft. That's
    probably why Bill thought up the name "Microsoft" -- it was all
    eventually going to be about micropayments from millions of consumers.
    He's got vision, has Bill. What is it that you think he does on his
    think weeks?

    Isn't that what they call head-banging? Isn't it dangerous?
