Combating Avalon with a Realistic Mozilla Platform
I'm one of the guys to wrote "Creating Applications with Mozilla" for O'Reilly, and I have been very interested in the discussions lately about Mozilla's future as a web application platform. After thinking about it for a while, I have something to say, so here it is. It's nice to see Mozilla talking with GNOME on how to work together. One reason of wanting to talk to GNOME is Mono, and how Mono could fit into Mozilla and GNOME. Mono has the goal of cloning Avalon, so this correlates with Mozilla's future for web applications. However, I don't think Mozilla + GTK + Mono = Avalon clone is a good idea.
