Windows Longhorn RSS feature on cards

BY OUR TECHNOLOGY CORRESPONDENT

25 June, 2005: Microsoft Windows Longhorn will come with RSS feeds facility. The world's leading operating system maker has finally woken up to the fact what Safari, Firefox and Netscape offers as standard cannot be all that bad.

Most of the popular broswers currently availabe offer RSS feeds as a standard feature. RSS is a method whereby users can, with the use of a browser or special software, receive news from websites without having to visit the website. This reduces time to burrow into websites and find exactly the section and sub-section from where you may be looking for the news.

"We're making a really big RSS investment in Longhorn," said Gary Schare, Director, Windows Product Management, Microsoft in a statement.
Many online content sites and weblogs use RSS syndication as as a metod to distribute content without hassles. 

Microsoft now say that the new Windows operating system Longhorn will have RSS as one of its features. It said Longhorn will make use of a special database and API to make RSS feeds available desktop programs.

To make use of this, you will have to use the upcoming Internet Explorer 7.0, so that it works seamlessly with he operating system. Longhorn, Microsoft says, will be able to store RSS feeds and other related information on the hard drive for use by other applications. 

Despite its ease of use, RSS is still not a highly popular technology. Microsoft believes that it can change that by bundling RSS syndication facility along with its operating system.

Microsoft is also expected to open its RSS technology for developers. Microsoft said it would leave the standard open for commerce sites, such as online retailers and music stores, to update the users with latest information.

It said that it would make RSS integration available to Windows XP users as well. However, users cannnot store information on their hard disks. That feature will be exclusive to Longhorn, according to Microsoft. Microsoft would distribute versions of Longhorn at its Professional Developers Conference in September next year.
