Subject Murphy on Cocoon
Date Mon, 04 Jul 2005 14:23:50 GMT
"I have one overwhelming reaction to the difference between Cocoon 
then, and Cocoon now. Fundamentally it seems to have evolved from 
science experiment to professional product - there is now a clarity of 
purpose and design simplicity that promises to make it a joy to work 
"I haven't downloaded and started up the new Cocoon technologies yet, 
but it's clear from the documentation, demonstration sites, and sample 
code that they've gone in the opposite direction: from a scattergun 
agenda including ritual bowing to market realities (like com) to a 
clear focus on doing one job as well as possible at each stage in a 
pipelined processing framework. Looking at it, I'd guess Doug McIlroy 
in particular, but also Thompson, Ritchie, and the other original Unix 
creators, would be proud to see one of their core ideas carried forward 
and expressed so well in a working application."
