In-Depth ajaxWrite Review
Quoting from Alex Russell's blog post, "ajaxWrong" at http://alex.dojotoolkit.org/?p=551:
Apparently a new XUL app called "ajaxWrite" was just launched. I think this thing is going to be my poster child for what's wrong with single-renderer markup languages from now on. It might be a fine app, I haven't used it long enough to have a strong opinion, but its marketing is truly reprehensible. I'm sure someone assured Michael Robertson that they couldn't launch a web-ish app without tacking the word "ajax" in the title and the folks with sense were shouted down. A pity.
This thing is appropriating the necessarily amorphous terminology of "Ajax" for an implementation that is directly at odds with why Ajax is an important technology. A XUL app being billed as "Ajax" is just as laughable as a Flex or XAML app suddenly growing the same moniker. That it's Mozilla's walled-garden language doesn't really excuse the gaffe.
