Indeed, all the interesting innovations are inextricably linked with one another and anchored to the Windows platform (e.g., Active Directory Services). Paradoxically, Microsoft is opting for the “honest” approach, playing on openness and interoperability by actively participating in the development of the SOAP standard.
