The vision thing – CNET talks to Bill Gates

Advertisements

Is it just me, or does Bill Gates sound really confused and muddled in this CNET interview?

The architecture we are interested in we call server-equals-service, so that we will have the full Exchange capability that you can subscribe to, where we run it, or you can have it on-premise with the traditional licensing approach. At this conference, we do give out APIs (application programming interfaces) for the MSN Search and the MSN Virtual Earth capability, so things that have been cloud-based services, you can have client applications that other services can connect to. So, I’d say the evolution is server to service, and bringing that symmetry in.
