I agree and should have to be more specific. I just like the basic concept of "naked objects" in that you see the same data object like the computer sees it. I don't like the GUI approach too. IMO a further good idea is to just offer the functions that make sense in an actual context (for objects of type X, for objects with association of type X and value of Y of Z... Etc.)

I totally agree and be sure not to see a MDI application or any mouse-orgy action needed to do what you want.

Well than write your own GUI for it. I hate learning trillions of GUIS, usage patterns etc. just because nobody follows a simple KISS rule. I just don't want to remember all the menues etc. The GUI must support useability and fast working experience... Fancy stuff can be added later.

Web based forms? I really don't like Web-Applications. To me it's a completely missuse of a publishing concept. But we will see if and how a Web front-end can be added to RFM.

I hope it won't take to long for a new release....

The desktop will stay there but the Reblets... Well I won't need them anymore, at least the ones that do simple data stuff like contacts, bug-report, expert etc. My goal is to replaces these step-by-step with RFM and gain integration capabilties in return. Robert
