The article discusses the significance of Microsoft's enablement of its .Net platform in the U.S. According to Jonathan Perera, general manager of Microsoft's Application Platform Division, such a move will empower software developers to use the tool set in a new and interesting way and one of those ways is to better integrate data into the applications' platform. S. "Soma" Somasegar, senior vice president of the company's Developer Division, the scheme is vital because once a programmer learn the Microsoft programming model, he can use it to build applications anywhere on the platform. The company also rolled out a Community Technology Preview (CTP) of its Microsoft Synch Framework which enables collaboration and offline scenarios for applications, services and devices.
