This is a little off-topic but I've just started looking XUL as a UI framework and it's simplicity and web-based nature are exciting but I figured I'd face resistance in an IE-only shop asking IT install Mozilla on every PC in order to use XUL (e.g. "they don't need another browser", "your app is supposed to be web-based so why do we have to install more stuff on the client", etc). The XUL Alliance Site is the first place I've seen mention the self-installing ActiveX XWT. Perhaps after a sucessful deployment of a simple screen or two using XWT one could build enough confidence and momentum to move on to a more full-featured Mozilla XUL if necessary? ...anyone out there have any advice on getting XUL in the door?
