(Some of this was discussed two weeks ago at the XML One conference in Santa

1. A "Windows machine" is not required. The architect of a major middleware
product told me at the conference that modifying his server to process
BizTalk messages was trivial.

2. Microsoft is obviously going to produce a toolkit for Win 2000 and Visual
Basic, but Linux and Perl are a fact of life -- so there is also a Perl

The expert panel discussion at XML One was taped and it will shortly be
available at www.technetcast.com. The panel included Bill Smith of OASIS
(xml.org) and Dan Rogers of Microsoft (biztalk.org). Bill Smith talked about
OASIS's efforts to embrace and extend XML, particularly to enable more small
and medium-sized organizations to participate in XML-based e-commerce.
