Microsoft introduces 'Hailstorm'
So far .Net was only known as a catchphrase, but now Microsoft has finally let the cat out of the bag and introduced a technology called 'Hailstorm' (= 'hailstorm'). This is Microsoft's core program for .Net. 'Hailstorm' is based on the meta-internet language XML and is supposed to connect the many service islands in the internet with each other and provide the user with information everywhere.
However, this service will no longer be free, but paid for according to usage will. 'Hailstorm' should be ready for the market next year.
