Will there ever be a semantic Web? More grumblings between major players seem to be highlighting the differences and suggesting that there are lots of different directions companies would like to take XML.

In the Infoworld article, IBM seems to be quite disenchanted with Microsoft and its BizTalk repository site, while earlier this week Sun was unhappy about Microsoft's SOAP strategy.
