Michael, this thread starts with a list of
features "I" like in Longhorn and XAML.
Address those. Disagreement is
fine, but unless you can disagree with
the technical approach, not enough people
care. The US government won't help this time.
They are distracted.
Actually, XAML although fun, is the least
interesting part of the design. Indigo,
WinFX and WinFS are. They are recognizing
the hardware evolution and that kids live
for their 3D real time networked games.
Dig down into the Longhorn documents and understand what
is in that framework. It isn't just cool; it's right.

Umm, this seems to confirm Tim Bray's "cui bono" suspicions. Does the
IT industry need a Next Big Thing, or are end users suffering real
pains that Avalon, etc. cure? I'm wide open to being persuaded that
HTML sucks as a UI, but I'm just seeing "oooh, cool" and "we need
something new" and "disagreement is ludicrous" arguments.
