Friday, March 24th, 2006p>The much-publicised AjaxWrite is only the beginning for Michael Robertson’s push into Ajax. Further to the release a couple of days ago, here’s some info on their plans:
But ajaxWrite is just the start. We have a library of applications we have been working on to replace most of the standard PC software titles. Every week we will launch a new sophisticated program on Wednesday at 12:00 PST on http://www.ajaxLaunch.com. These programs will push the boundaries of what people believe is possible today with web-delivered software. These programs look and operate much like their traditional software cousins, but are cross-platform, loaded dynamically, and are available to users at no charge. I’m convinced if you try a few of these products you will understand how the software business will fundamentally change.
The Business 2.0 blog calls it an Ajax PC strategy. An Ajax appliance must be the next logical step :-).
Hopefully the “Ajax PC” suite will work for all major browsers. Alex Russell’s recent post takes issue with the fact that AjaxWrite belies its name by working only in Firefox, and graciously suggests that the xulwrite.com domain is still available.
