A good article discussing the various specs “competing” with XAML up at WebStandards.

For more comparisons of XML GUI languages, see DonXML's comparison of XAML and SVG-RCC, and Neil Deakin's point-by-point comparison of XAML and XUL.

The three XML GUI languages above represent only a fraction of those available. Others include XWT, Java GUI Builder, Glade for the GTK+ toolkit used in the GNOME desktop, XML GUI Builder for the KDE Desktop, Laszlo Systems' XML-and-ECMAScript Flash authoring software, Macromedia's Royale Initiative and Kinesis Software's Kinetic Fusion, a Java application that converts Rich Vector Markup Languag, Kinesis' own XML-based vector graphics format, into SVG or Flash and back.

Great stuff. I can't wait for XAML. Hey, I know you're reading this on your Blackberry. Can you give me a call or an IM? - Carl
