   RE: [xml-dev] Microsoft Hypes Up XUL As The Greatest Expiriment Since Ad

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Yeah.  It is the US Navy MID come back.  Nothing GNU 
under the Sun, fella.

Anyone who opened a Win 3 era resource file came to 
the same conclusion.  One can mark up anything that 
has names and named properties.   It isn't revolutionary 
and the only new aspect to it is that people are now 
accepting a design that was derided and cat called 
ten years ago.  XUL wasn't new and neither is XAML.  In 
a medium and industry where ideas are not treated 
scholastically, anyone can claim anything anytime and 
the only fair process relies on momentum. 

Welcome to carnivale.  There is the roller coaster.

   Now let's look what a button looks like in the
"revolutionary" Microsoft XAML thingy:

   <Button Background="LightSeaGreen" FontSize="24pt">

   Whow. Compared to the XUL version:

   <button label="Calculate" style="background:
lightSeaGreen; font-size: 24pt" />
   This is truly revolutionary and a bold step for
mankind. <snip />

  Any comments?
