Awesome read...a bit overboard on the comparisons to sql...but the author
themselves pointed out that it was so...uhm interesting ideas, and probably
a lot of truth in the community centric design long horn is going to
implement...but there are some benefits to that for deployment of
applications and for product's just that, there are
qualities of the web that we would like to keep...and having those be the
people's choice rather than Microsoft's is probably a good idea.

Take care,

the following url is interesting reading.
consider for a moment what would happen to organisations such as the 
iso, ietf, and, irtf, and the like and the w3c, if long horn was 
swallowed up by the masses.
