> Why does anyone need XUL?
> Quick! Fat client vs thin client.
Len, please grow up. XUL doesn't replace HTML but
instead builds on it. I guess you somehow missed the
whole XUL discussion here on xml-dev.
If you're truly interested in what XUL has to offer
why not check out my "Rich Clients, Rich Browsers,
Rich Portals" lecture series online @
Just in case it's too much effort let me highlight
Five Freedoms - Xul Charter
* Freedom to Choose Your Runtime - Java, Mono, C/C++
* Freedom to Choose Your UI Designer
* Freedom to Choose Your UI Toolkit - Swing, SWT,
* Freedom to Choose Your Scripting Language - Python,
* Freedom to Choose Your Programming Language - Java,
* Powerful widget markup (XML, Babe)
* Built on proven standards (Reuse, Reuse, Reuse)
* Platform portability (Runs Anywhere)
* Splits presentation and application logic (Beyond
Hairballs and Spaghetti Code)
* Easy customization, localization, or branding (Your
Way or the Highway)
> Can you do it without Spy Vs Spy?
Len, I'm getting sick of your Spy vs. Spy cliche. If
you haven't realized it yet the cold war is over for
more than a decade now. Why not use something more
up-to-date to show that you aren't stuck in the past.
