"XML Schema is here to stay because SOAP needs it."
Don Box
(Software Engineer)

( IT )
"When we started working on SOAP in 1998, the goal was to get away from this model of integration by code injection that distributed object technology had embraced. Instead, we wanted an integration model that made as few possible assumptions about the other side of the wire, especially about the technology used to build the other side of the wire. We've come to call this style of integration protocol-based integration or service-orientation."

"COM underwear is a collector's item. We probably made several thousand pairs back in the day and I peeled 14 off one of the shipments to take home. For a while, that was the only underwear I wore. For years of my life I always was wearing COM underwear. Now I only wear it on special occasions. For example, I am not wearing COM underwear right now."

"Calling the whole system 'Linux' leads people to think that the system's development was started in 1991 by Linus Torvalds. That is what most users seem to think. The occasional few users that do know about the GNU Project often think we played a secondary role--for example, they say to me, 'Of course I know about GNU--GNU developed some tools that are part of Linux.'"

"It's clear that other problems such as religious fundamentalism, overpopulation, damage to the environment, and the domination of business over government, science, thought, and society, are much bigger than non-free software. But many other people are already working on them, and I don't have any great aptitude or ideas for how to address them. So it seems best for me to keep working on the issue of free software. Besides, free software does counter one aspect of business domination of society." (2000)
