Once again, Microsoft jumps on an already-full bandwagon


Microsoft has announced that it will include RSS support in the next version of Windows, to be released, oh, any year now.

As I sit here, tapping away on my Mac, I have two web browsers open (Safari and Firefox), both of which have built-in RSS support, as well as a dedicated RSS aggregator (NetNewsWire Lite).

Microsoft is coming jes' a bit late to this game, but I expect it to do its usual "we'll add a few proprietary features, and make it so all RSS feeds from Windows servers include those features by default, thereby breaking everyone else's aggregators". Embrace, extend, and extinguish. Hate it.
