There's a big, long, sometimes hard to read post on RoughlyDrafted that dives into a bunch of Apple vs Adobe vs Microsoft vs Sun vs Google scenarios with the central topic being that SproutCore is Apple's Flash killer. So what is SproutCore?
There are a couple of demos that actually ran pretty terribly on my Mac in Camino. Most of the news and following blog posts seem to come from a single session at WWDC that talked about SproutCore. The RoughlyDrafted post seems to imply that Apple will be supporting the SproutCore project. Could we see something like we have with WebKit? The SproutCore blog doesn't mention anything like that which I can see. But the creator, Charles Jolley, was hired as part of the .Mac team so I guess that means that Apple has acquired the framework.
