Microsoft and RSS

Argh! Microsoft plans to extend RSS!!! Remember how they “extended” java? Well next target is RSS. Embrace and extend – this is classic.

Last time I checked we had standards in order to ensure broad compatibility. Extending a standard is the most retarded thing I have ever seen in my life! When you extend a standard it stops being a standard anymore. You might as well roll out your own implementation! You extend it – you break it! Even a child can see it!

So obviously they are doing this on purpose – just like before. They want to break a popular standard, then reinvent it and market it as their own. They tried that with java, but it didn’t work. So hopefully it wont work this time either.
