According to the rumor mill http://www.infoq.com/news/2010/08/quadrant-drops Microsoft is not really pushing it.
The M model isn't identical to YAML's (e.g., collections are unsorted and arrays are second class).
M isn't a superset of JSON, YAML is.
M is tightly coupled with the Microsoft ecosystem.
There are plenty or differences...

Have fun,

Hi,

I stumbled upon Microsoft's "M" aka project Oslo which includes the
MGraph language. It is often compared with XML but looks much more like
YAML. Has anyone had a look at it and compared it with YAML? Some good
introductions:
