EU: Microsoft's stealing our intarwebz


Yesterday Simon Awde, chairman of the EU committee for Interoperable Systems (ECIS) claimed Microsoft is plotting to "hijack HTML", taking control of previously open standards.

Awde singled out XAML as an example of Microsoft's plans for domination. He also claims "Vista is the first step in Microsoft's strategy to extend its market dominance to the internet".

The EU also claimed that XAML is "positioned to replace HTML"; where XAML misses items such as forms for submitting information to a server, and only runs on the Windows operating system... are many web designers really going to even consider making thier sites Windows only? Doubt it.

Pfft, M$ are going to fail with this plan. People on Linux/Mac etc will simply do the same to them and make their sites Linux/Mac etc only. It will never work. When you think that more sites run on Linux than Windows, it will never work.

I think they're talking about the actual HTML, rather than the servers.

Yeah but knowing them they wont release the code for linux users and keep it hard coded into IIS, eg, it being a server based language is how they'll probably do that.
