Cardspace is busted when working with Instant Messenger Clients
Within many corporate environments, the popularity of instant messaging is on the rise. Have you ever noticed that many instant messaging clients have a feature that monitors the desktop so as to detect the status of the user? Did you happen to know that this functionality can trip up an identity selector?
Shouldn't these two things coexist? I know that Microsoft is aware of the challenges in using Cardspace when you also have some of the IM clients but if Cardspace is going to become popular then they need to address this asap. Hopefully, MS can provide guidance in a public manner as to whom is more at fault and what needs to change in terms of how applications are developed...
