[REBOL] About View "Skinz" Contest

From: etienne:alaurent:free at: 25-Feb-2002 0:32

Hi all, I noticed the View "Skinz" Contest. It's a very good idea indeed :-) 2 remarks : -1) Don't forget that winamp is for Window$. Many people don't use Window$ but Apple or Linux or others OS with View. If you want to make an Mp3 player for everybody, you can't do this specially for Window$ OS. -2) About my skins : yes, I built skins for View. Everybody can use them for any app. But it was a test. The code is not optimized, can contain bugs, is slow on slower machines (especially complex widgets), and will not run with the next View version (this version will be derived from IOS with better graphical support, I presume). The net update is not optimal (the best approach is to implement a sharing file system, with file replication, like in IOS => this could be an interesting contest). Other thing, I would like to see different implementations for skinning, because I think other people could have other good ideas. Try for instance the FX5 skin, the Dockimbel's Winskin, ... -- regards. --- Etienne
