What is the best XML writing utility??

We are about to embark on upgrading to and then heavily using Biztalk 2004, which mean lots of XML schemas. As we all know the writer in Biztalk is pretty bad and was wondering what other people out there have used and like the best. So I ask everyone out there “What is the best XML writing utility?” (for my situation)

gbrowser overload...
OMG yes it seems google will have a browser. Okay now that you know take about ten seconds and see how much of a big deal everyone is making out of it. Make a big deal about it when it comes out and is really good, really bad (doubtful) , or just on par with the rest. So everyone now knows about the gbrowser we can all go on with our lives and stop making such a big deal about it.

Microsoft to take direct shots at Linux rivals
So I saw this article on CNET: My favorite part is “Taylor said he expects that targeting Linux sellers such as Red Hat and Novell will be persuasive to software customers. However, he said Microsoft recognizes that it will have to use different tactics for capturing the interest of students and programmers, where the philosophical appeal of open-source software ......

Virtual Server 2005 and MSDN
I have been looking around the web to find out when Virtual Server 2005 will be shipped to me via my MSDN universal subscription. Well I have found out its NOT! But here is what i found on the MSDN Managed Newsgroups. “The following information is from the PM for Virtual Server: As you are all aware, Virtual Server 2005 will not be a part of MSDN. However, the VS and MSDN teams have collaborated to create a special offer for Virtual Server 2005 Standard and Enterprise Editions which are being ......

Virtual Server 2005 Migration Toolkit

If you have used VSMT (yes one more acronym). Could you please share your thoughts on the experience? We are thinking of doing some cool stuff with the whole Virtual Server line for testing and development work. We are planning on virtualizing at least 16 machines to start with. Maybe with multiple versions of each. And if you are asking yourself wont this use a lot of disk space? Yes, almost 1 terabyte for the initial 16 machines. So please let me know what your opinion of VSMT is.

Full text RSS is slowly going away
More and more feeds are turning off full text. I love full text feeds. I do not subcribe to feeds that are not full text. Ask why should I even subcribe to a feed that is not full text. You gain very little. Why not just open up IE and check out the website? I know why people are turning full text off so heres the word BANDWIDTH. If you go check out Scoble here and here you will see exactly ......

SOA Developer Don'ts
I am trying to compile a list of SOA developer dont's. Things that people are doing out there that they shouldn't be. I will start the list with passing objects in and out of services. A good example of this is passing a dataset out of a service. JAVA developers will not be able to use this service because JAVA cannot translate a dataset. The fix is to use XML instead. Well I hope this list gets nice and long and then I will try to narrow them down and rank them. ......
