Well, yes there are a number of people, including myself, Sun, Aol and loads of 
others that are very interested in what is going to emerge as the king of distributed 
authentication and who will, if anyone, will be the king of providing web services 
work. It's a very exciting and new area for the programming world and open source 
needs to make it's response. But that doesn't really mean that *nix folks are 
cheering for C#.

Everyone knows that the desktop market will continue to shrink from here on out 
and software manufacturers need to be able to provide high-quality secure online 
applications that work. .Net is a platform doing so with Passport as the 
authentication mechanism.

I wonder how PHP will fit into this whole distributed application framework, if it 
will. I 
have written a PHP authentication module, that could possibly be distrubuted, 

We are off topic, sorry. If anyone wants to respond to this, just email directly.
