Bye Bye Microsoft Word, Hello ajaxWrite
This joins the various Office productivity applications (notably OpenOffice)
and Google's latest acquisition.
I tried this out Friday and was pretty impressed with it.
I do think that making apps with a mixed load on client and server is
the way things are going all around.
However, I am sold on the rich/client(java):smart/client(.net) paradigm
and I see, after 10 years of server side application advances, the
pendulum swinging to client side.
The thing that people aren't talking about much is "manipulation".
Although I and other advocates poo-poo Vista, I think that Microsoft has
been making good moves in the direction of trying to provide a highly
manipulative rich desktop...with scripts and xml that can tap into high
level structures of the GUI and OS. Although Linux has that now and
has had it to some extend (XML gui building).
I guess what I'm saying is that delivering massive amounts of client
side code, as long as it there to provide manipulation and be
manipulated is no longer a bad thing to me.
