Mozilla as a High-Level, Easy-to-Use Desktop Linux GUI Application Development System

Tuesday January 20th, 2004

Adam Hauner sent us to a link to a LinuxWorld article in which Nigel McFarlane argues that Mozilla is the natural choice for high-level desktop Linux GUI application development. More controversially, McFarlane goes on to claim that application frameworks such as Mozilla are now more critical to the success of open source than the Linux kernel.

I can't read the article since I'm not a subscriber, but I have a feeling he's saying that Mozilla's XUL can be useful for general GUI development? I then came to think about Microsoft's coming XAML language to be used for the Longhorn GUI. It's interesting how two technologies like these might get common in the future. Microsoft seem to be thinking about doing something similar to what Mozilla does with XUL.
