You got me there!  Ballmer's hype is pretty monumental, paraphrased later in
this article as "Ballmer's optimism that XML will flawlessly usher in a new
means of doing business." So I can see how a reasonable journalist could
feel the need to deflate this particular hype balloon.

Thanks for setting me straight ... it's scary to look back on such hype; it
reminds me of 1997 or so when Java was hyped as the Windows-killing
universal client... and of 1998 when it was considered a failure for not
sending Bill G. to the poorhouse.  We should probably get ready for a spate
of "XML didn't solve the world's problems, so it's dead" articles. Sigh.
