[REBOL] Re: MS .Net pricing ...

From: jseq:mediaone at: 24-Oct-2001 8:13

Hosting a secure service is expensive - MS says they're barely covering costs on .NET, and I don't doubt this. For $100/mo you get 170 million passport users for your site who don't have to go through a #@$% registration screen. As much as I don't want to see their monopoly extended to web services, I don't think it will fail because of pricing or their oh-so-sleepy competitors (Magic Carpet and Liberty Alliance's less proven vapor-ware). As Carl pointed out, trust/security is a more likely risk for them. John Sequeira [johnseq--pobox--com]
