MS rolling out Ajax toolkit
Looks like Microsoft will be rolling out an Ajax-enabling toolkit called Atlas.
Microsoft's Atlas is a "Web client framework" designed to make the job of building AJAX-style applications simpler, said Charles Fitzgerald, the company's general manager for platform technologies.
The "rocket science" quote is funny, 'cause one of the questions posed at the Ajax Summit I attended last month was along the lines of "is Ajax rocket science?" Answer: only if you want to build rockets.
