The debate continues on this topic of Cloud Manifesto and Open Standards, with this article from Joe Wilcox - Microsoft Watch: http://www.microsoft-watch.com/content/web_services_browser/cloud_manifesto_is_microsoft_afraid_of_rain.html
"Microsoft doesn't get enough credit for advancing Web standards. But the standards usually come on terms favorable to Microsoft."
"GigaOM's Stacey Higginbotham: It's ironic that Microsoft is whining about openstandards, especially given its own history with proprietary fileformats."
Well, regardless of rain or snow, lets make sure these clouds remain open, and not closed...
Dont want proprietary rain or snow
