The REST vs WS* wars get ever more interesting, with Dare Obasanjo from the Windows Live team announcing (or confirming) his conversion to RESTful ways, and Project Astoria demonstrating that Microsoft is now building REST services into ASP.NET and ADO.NET (see here for further comment).

Microsoft is still committed to WS*, but equally seems to recognize that much of the world wants to do REST. I’m glad that pragmatism is winning over dogged determination to stand by technology choices.
