Subject: Are people really using real XForms in real life?

> Greetings,
> I keep being told by people who haven't started using XForms that it is
> proven technology yet, because no one is using it, there is no browser
> support, Microsoft aren't implementing, it doesn't slice bread straight or
> make a good cup of coffee, and so on and so forth. When I talk to vendors
> they tell me that they have customers live today, who think that XForms is
> actually more useful than sliced bread.
> Well, I have to do a short presentation at a conference next Tuesday, in

> smug as they sit back and await the answer.
> So, implementors and vendors, I will redirect the question to you in

> Please reply to me direct. If I get enough replies to this question

> tragic accident involving an XForms  model, a bread slicing machine and
> coffee maker, or I didn't get enough replies, or I forgot.
> All the best
