On the Thought: Gosling on SWT

On the Thought: Gosling on SWT: "From memory, there were some OTI Smalltalkers 7-8 ago who did try to convince Sun they were going down the wrong path with AWT/Swing. Swing is very analogous to VisualWorks Smalltalk's approach of emulating the widget toolkit. OTI had been native UI toolkits in Smalltalk for many years and thought it was a better approach. A lot of those folks are responsible for SWT today. They thought emulated was the wrong way to go and they still do."

Go OTI Smalltalkers! I was one of them once.
