I enjoyed Knuts post on Eclipse's new RCP.
The great thing about SWT / JFace is that its completely native; so any
platform specific stuff (neato OS X stuff or MS .Net malarkey or coolio
3D looking glass goo) should be totally integratable.
Already SWT / JFace integrates neatly with COM; I wonder if the RCP
will provide a neat bridge to .NET stuff for Java developers who need
to do some MS Office hackery without moving over to the dark side?
I spotted this demo via WebMink
today which looks pretty cool. It'd be great to integrate this with OS
X, Expose and virtual desktops. Though I always thought that 3D
desktops would be more like running around a building like Quake / Doom
rather than being a 'desktop'.
