Mozilla Wins XUL Motor of the Year 2003 Award

Saturday January 3rd, 2004

Gerald Bauer writes: "The Richmond Post — a news blog chronicling the XUL Revolution — announced the winners of the XUL Motor of the Year 2003 award today [Friday]. Mozilla leads the pack with 98 votes (31%) followed by two Java XUL motors (Swix and Thinlet) and a Flash XUL motor (Zulu)."

Given that Mozilla is the only "XUL motor" on the award shortlist to actually support the XUL specification, it is hard to see how anything else could have won. Unless of course you use 'XUL' to mean any XML-based declaritive markup language, in which case you probably also use 'Java' to refer to any object-oriented programming language and 'English' to describe any language that uses the Latin alphabet.

His last article was "fairly good"? Does that include the footnote where he accuses you of censorship and being "hypocritical to the whole concept of OPEN source"? Granted, the article is a little more coherent than previous efforts, but that makes it relatively good for Andkon, not "fairly good".

The article about someone rewriting the site was pointless as well. Rewriting the site had been done before (and better - that rewrite was broken in IE6), and the "redesign" was clearly never going to have any chance of being used.

There must be better stuff to cover than this...
