Microsoft Integrating RSS into Longhorn

Microsoft announced Friday that they will be integrating several new RSS features in the next version of Windows, code-named Longhorn. The Longhorn Browsing and RSS team also announced a new RSS extension, to be released into Creative Commons, called Simple List Extensions. The extension will allow users to publish a lists as feeds and introduces a change to the RSS specification that many are not too happy about.

RSS functionality in Longhorn will make it easier for users to discover, view, subscribe to RSS feeds, and extend the RSS into more applications – which is a good thing.
