(I was the OSF DCE Technical Lead.  At times I am seriously amused by 
watching web services re-create what DCE offered years ago.)

There's a fundamental difference between then and now.  For the first 
time, *everyone* is providing the same distributed systems 
infrastructure.  As an application person, I don't have to get a JRE on 
every machine, or put a Corba/IIOP engine on the desktop, etc.   The 
barrier to deployment of distributed applicaitons -- and soon, secure 
distributed applications -- is nearly zero.  That's an important first.

Joel, an MSFT type, either doesn't see or doesn't appreciate this.
