[REBOL] About View "Skinz" Contest
From: etienne:alaurent:free at: 25-Feb-2002 0:32
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, ...
