   [ANN] Robin: Remote XUL Desktop Prototype Goes Live

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


  The XUL News Wire reports: 

  Randall Knutson has released the first prototype for
a remote desktop using XUL. Point your Mozilla XUL
browser (e.g. Firebird) @ http://robin.sourceforge.net
to call up a fresh desktop with a startup menu and
play XulMine, Mozteroids, Pagman, Snake, Xultris,
MozInvaders and more.

  What is Robin? Here's the "official" blurb from the
sourceforge project site:

  Remote Operating System Build in Netscape (Robin) is
a window manager using DHTML, Javascript, XUL and some
crazy hacks.

  Full story @ http://sourceforge.net/projects/robin 

  MozillaZine also runs a story on Robin @

  If I may quote some responses:

  "This is good, really good."

  "wow, that is awesome."

  "That's just way too cool"   

  and for balance the response from a Microsoft junkie
titled "Been there done that":

  "This isn't very new. There has been tons (well a
few) of these, some even commercial but none have
succeeded." Come on guys let's stick with Windows.
