M$ Offers Advice To Mozilla

An interesting article from mozillanews.org...

... Microsoft's Technology Evangelist, Robert Scoble... He sees that mozilla.org could benefit by implementing features of WinFS... creating a better UI by making use of Avalon/XAML features... and other Longhorn specific features. Scoble seems genuine in his feeling that Longhorn can be a promised land, but he admits he uses Firefox on his longhorn installation, so one must wonder how little IE has advanced in Microsoft's next generation OS...

I agree that some of the OS-specific features like WinFS can be used to speed up the application and make the app more native... But XAML... Why bother to use? LOL... We already have the wonderful XUL that is used by tons of developers and users.
