The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Microsoft wraps itself in vision of future Web

The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Microsoft wraps itself in vision of future Web: "'The real power of that whole platform is based on the Vista operating system, and it's going to take awhile; I'd say three to five years,' said Richard Monson-Haefel, an analyst at Salt Lake City-based Burton Group and a former Java developer.
At the same time, he said, Microsoft's easy-to-use programming tools are appealing to Web developers, despite the buzz for alternatives such as open-source software.
'Developers are in the end pragmatists,' he said. 'Some of your louder, squeakier wheels tend to be idealists when it comes to what technologies are best, but ... everybody else just wants to solve a problem and go home to their kids.'"
