Laszlo and the great .NET RIA drought
Laszlo one of the contenders in the RIA space has announced that the Laszlo Presentation Server will go open source, many folks are asking what does this mean to the RIA space and if your a Flex user what does it mean, Steve has a great post that will help with any questions. My point about all of this is really very simple, .NET!
I would say that would'nt I ;-) but LPS is based on J2EE, its opensource Java software and I strongly suspect would need to be rewritten (like all opensource Java software that makes it to .NET). As opensource software, maybe that it will happen, but I suspect you would need to build it from scratch to do it. So what does this mean to the .NET developers wishing to leverage .NET technologies with RIA, as with anything in RIA space right now, it means very little.
Weston makes a call for interest on the Laszlo list for a port to .NET, anyone that wants to join the effort do let him know.
