Open source rich client

David Temkin CTO at Laszlo has
made the gutsy move to Open Source. The is the first rich client
application that has a chance of widespread adoption and can change the
way we deliver client applications

It has two significant features going for it (or soon will have
apart from Open Source) that will enable its success. One is the
upcoming serverless model, this is critical for scalability and ease of
deployment. The second is the use of a plugin to deliver high quality
rendering and features that are just not possible with other approaches
using DHTML. Using Flash 6.0 plugin ensures that Laszlo applications
will run in any browser and can take advantage of platform independent
features that DHTML applications just cannot.

The last piece of the puzzle is making it Open Source, I can now
recommend that we take full advantage of the platform and know that we
do not have any major risk of the technology going away. I fully expect
a strong and vibrant community to build around this new client delivery
platform. I wish them every success.
