RE: Why I Like Longhorn and XAML
Not at all. They have put a very big goalpost out there and some of us who have to lug legacies down that field have a very tricky play to make. But we've done this before and what the PDC announcements give us is time to plan (foreground vs background timing). Why is it a good thing if the XULies do it and a bad thing if MS does it? Neither invented it so the "copied XUL" arguments are horsefeathers. len From: Simon St.Laurent [mailto:simonstl@s...] clbullar@i...

The only risk they're taking with XAML is a backlash against their arrogance in discarding things that are already out there, but not owned by them. I suppose that's a genuine risk, but not something they're likely to lose sleep over.
