Apollo looks neat.  Anyone interested in creating
offline-capable apps will
also want to track these, all of which will compete
for your hearts/minds
this year:

	- Firefox 3 (web paradigm, all platforms, open)

	- Dekoh (web paradigm, all platforms, open)

	- .NET 3.0 (desktop paradigm, Windows, closed)

	- WPF/E (web paradigm, all platforms, closed)

	- Slingshot (web paradigm, Ruby on Rails, closed?)

And of course, you can build full-fledged,
multi-platform, offline-capable
apps now using Firefox and XUL:

	- Joost <http://www.joost.com/>

	- Democracy Player/Miro

	- Songbird <http://www.songbirdnest.com/>
