Old news to anyone in the know technology-wise, and old-hat to anti-Microsoft geeks and long-standing converts to open comms standards, but I think it’s significant that this story reaches mainstream news at the Beeb.

Yes I know – standards – so good, you can never have too many, but here’s hoping for sensible convergence to continue.
