The XML Way

Don Box summarizes his XML / Web Services One keynote by describing "The XML Way" (emphasis added)
... XML allows you to do things your way and me do things my way.

COM was built on the same principle provided that your way and my way both meant programming on Windows.

XML removes that constraint, which is one of many reasons it continues to spread at near viral growth rates.
