Microsoft to undermine AJAX?

In its usual mode of creating a competing technology that usually doesn't quite work with the original (JavaScript v. JScript, etc.), Microsoft is reportedly developing a web app development framework code-named Atlas, in order to compete with AJAX (Asyncrhonous JavaScript And XML).

In case you haven't been paying attention, AJAX is the technology to watch. Even a few of the giants are testing the waters with AJAX; Google's Personalized Homepage and Google Maps are good examples, and both Yahoo! and Microsoft have launched beta sites using AJAX recently.
