What platform do you want to use for your Next Big Desktop Application Hit?

Meine persönlichen "Anforderungen" an die Wunschplattform entbehren ohnehin jeden Sinn für Realitäten jedweder Art ... schlanke Runtime (Redistribution in unter einem Megabyte sollte denkbar sein), möglichst auf allen Systemen laufend (aber zumindest auf Win32, Linux, OS X), dabei so easy wie REBOL/View (wobei anzumerken ist, dass die Easyness bei komplexeren Applikationen schnell abnimmt, was vor allem der praktisch nonexistenten Dokumentation zu verdanken ist) und so leistungsfähig wie WinForms samt GDI+ (bzw. Swing samt Java2D) ...

.NET? — Smart Client Applications Technology Map

Java? — "Basically, you launch 10 non-trivial applications [jEdit, Anm. d. Red.] on your machine. Do it. On both my 256 Megs Linux box and my 128 Megs brand-new laptop, this experiment leads to a disaster. Under Windows 98 (the laptop), Windows broke and I had to reboot (admittedly, it made it very far in the process). What's my point? Well, if I can't launch 10 apps on a decent PC, then the software is wrong. Since jEdit itself, I'm sure you will all agree, is a fine app... then what is to blame? Java itself? I suspect not. [...] My beef with Swing is that it is a framework that doesn't allow you to write lightweight applications. I claim that it will prevent Java from ever "making it big" client-side."

REBOL/View?

Mozilla?Hannes thinks so: "Ich glaube dass Mozilla als Plattform für Client Applications ziemlich unschlagbar ist. Rocksolide, X-Platform, scriptbar mit XML und JavaScript."
