RE: Why I Like Longhorn and XAML
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. len From: Michael Champion [mailto:mc@x...] On Nov 4, 2003, at 9:18 PM, Didier PH Martin wrote: > Didier replies: > If the competition > cannot > respond to what Microsoft is offering, what can we do? 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 [expletive deleted] as a UI, but I'm just seeing "oooh, cool" and "we need something new" and "disagreement is ludicrous" arguments.
