RE: [Sigia-l] The future of WWW...
>That being said, I think there is another issue here. <sticking head
out of shell slowly>What if, IF!, Longhorn is all that and it brings
to market what any OSS couldn't imagine doing in the same timeframe at
the same level of support and professionalism?
What if, the web is ready to die as we know it and it is time for a
new technology to come along and better it? No one is really morning
the death of Gopher, eh?
>Its been a while since I argued this, but isn't the network (the
Internet) more akin to NTSB and less akin to a software license any
more? I mean imagine if every TV maker used different protocols for
interpretting TV signals? It would be a mess, no? I mean aren't we
reaching a point where we just gotta let the better app/solution win?
I'm sorry but would we be all high and mighty if Beta won over VHS as
it really should have?
There are those who can better argue this than I but...
Using your analogy to video tape recorders, isn't the concept of
Longhorn driving the structure of the Web the equivalent of a 'Microsoft
Remote Controller' driving the design of the 'Video Tape Recorders'?
