Robert Scoble on great uses of Avalon in Longhorn

In a response to Will Avalon be Ready?, Robert Scoble writes:

…That said, you will see some really great uses of Avalon in Longhorn. The clock that we shipped at the PDC is built in Avalon, for instance. There will be plenty of examples to prove to you that it’s ready for serious app development.

Well, clock samples are no sign that Avalon is ready for serious app development. Neither are NotePad clones etc. Avalon will be ready for serious app development if a major app like Outlook can be written with out-of-the-box controls & widgets supplied by the UI infrastructure of Longhorn.

Out-of-the-box? Yes. Because, for the sake of consistency, lots third-party developers will try to mimic the UI of Microsoft apps. And it’s neither in their nor in Microsofts best interest to re-invent the wheel.

Der aktuelle Soft-Drink Test

Fanta Berry Blue
Farbe: 10/10 Punkten. Ein grauenvolles, chemisch reines Blau.
Geschmack: 3/10 Punkten. Leichter Duft nach Hustensaft, dann der typische Beeren-Aromastoff, säuerlich prickelnder Abgang.
Fazit: Muß man nicht haben.

A simple proposal

A simple proposal by Alan Green (via Smalltalk with Rants):

Henceforth, any developer that uses the word “just” while describing or estimating the implementation of a new feature to a manager will be assigned the design, coding and testing tasks for that feature.

Uhm, oops. Gotta watch my language. Excellent post. Nice comments, there, too.
