Avalon and XAML Great for Developers, But maybe Fox should do it first

XAML or XUL (Mozilla's version) - two ways of building user interfaces via XML.

Column posts some great problems with this issue:

Is this going to be compiled at run time into the application or via a compiler via VS.net and C#? I don't know. Based on the demos I've seen, it would seem that XAML is loaded and compiled via some sort of software processing system because there was a noticeable pause between the window being created and the UI coming up.

Great - more application delay! Now how do you explain this to your customers?

Don't get me wrong - I LOVE The idea. Maybe FoxPro should support the first incarnation of it. After all, it's a LOT faster than any of the .Net stuff for parsing strings, etc.
