Main Question or Discussion Point

"Maldacena conjecture"

Does somebody here believe that the Maldacena conjecture is true?
Here's a lecture of 55 minutes in RealPlayer explaining the conjecture:

Do you know a simple explanation of the maldacena conjecture?

The technical statement that I've found is (literally):
"There's an isomorphism between N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory in d=4 and "string theory on AdS5XS5""
Roughly, it means that string theory living in a 5-dimensional anti-deSitter space can be described by a Yang-Mills theory living in the boundary of the anti-deSitter space
The simplest description is to say that Maldacena conjecture is a version of the holographic principle
