It also shows its DHTML heritage...

BTW, I think Avalon's XAML has already competition in Mono TODAY: just by 
using Glade#/GTK# many C# developers could make a lot of what is shown in 
Petzold's article 
but surely the finer presentation/styling control resembles more XUL.

WinFS, looks a lot more promising, but dynamic sets are shamelessly similar 
to Evolution vFolders. Other promises look somewhat more polished versions 
of what ActiveX Structured Compound Files, and NTFS File Attributes promised 
when launched...
