"What people want or expect is irrelevant. What the rules say is what is important. If the rules say nothing, nothing is correct or incorrect."

Mehr über 0.9.9 in Bälde."ScummVM is an implementation of LucasArts' SCUMM (Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion) interpreter, used in games such as Monkey Island, Indiana Jones, Day Of The Tentacle, Sam and Max, and many more. Some things are still missing, and some games cannot be completeted yet. There are quite a few known bugs. Regardless of the bugs it is still possible to play some games all the way through to the end.""Tinderbox also understands RSS feeds, which allows it to act as a news aggregator similar to Radio Userland. Using this capability, I've set up a "News" note that acts as a parent to several other notes that collect and display content from RSS feeds. I've then created a number of agents that scan only the notes in "News" for keywords that are important to me. These agents then continually display which feeds contain content that I've marked as interesting and important to me. This allows me to quickly and easily see critical news items without having to check all my favorite web sites or manually scan the contents of all the feeds I want to keep track of." Bar: "Sun's rebuff of IBM's Linux efforts so far only consists of suspicious observations and assertions. Leibniz, the German philosopher, already proved three centuries ago that any number of observations can be accommodated within an infinite number of explanations."Simon St. Laurent phantasiert: "Remember the scene in Aliens where the baby alien emerges from the guy's stomach? Flash has been tunneling deeply in the innards of browsers and web site development, and its latest iteration (Flash MX) looks like a full-blown attempt to emerge and kill its host in the process."

Faktum ist, dass Macromedia Flash immer besser in den Browser integriert (Support für Back-Button etc.). Faktum ist, dass SVG schon allein seiner Sperrigkeit wegen nie ein Ersatz für das wesentlich kompaktere und — was mittlerweile wohl durch die Realität bestätig sein dürfte — hochadaptive SWF-Format werden hätte können. Design by Committee mag good enough sein, wenn sich die Beteiligten darüber einigen können, welches Problem sie im Eigentlichen zu lösen gedenken, im Falle des aus x Technologien zusammengestöpselten SVG-Suite war dies wohl eher nicht der Fall. Macromedia als "schuldig" am SVG-Misserfolg anzuprangern grenzt arg an Naivität.

Optimal wird für die meisten Zwecke auch in Zukunft eine kluge Kombination aus HTML und Flash-Assets bleiben. Macromedia als Firma ist viel zu klein und machtlos, als dass sie in Microsoft-Manier zur "Gefahr" für die Offenheit des Webs werden könnte. Und nachdem Sun seine grosse Chance, den Rich-Client-Standard zu setzen, wohl oder übel vergeben hat, sei nun Macromedia ein Versuch gegönnt. Konkurrenz in diesem Bereich gibt es genug für die kommenden Jahre, vor allem auch da Flash konzeptionsbedingt nie in seiner one size allen passen wird.
