Web 2.0

Lately, there is a lot of buzz around two words: Web 2.0 and AJAX. Well, there is good reason for all the bees swarming around this honey.

This Web 2.0 is really a combination of common technologies and AJAX stands for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. So, the real deal is not the indevidual technologies but rather the effect of them combined to create Web Applications.

In my opinion, Web 2.0 is the real Microsoft kill because it make the operating system irrelivant. It work on any platform: Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, etc. Moreover, you don't even need a powerfull PC, all that is required is a web browser.

This is a really exciting time in technology. As a matter of fact, I beleive this is a revolution that turns the industry upside down. I'd like to also mention there's Ruby on Rails (RoR) yet another web application
