    Google Wave

    Coming later this year, something between e-mail, online documents, IM and... OK, just read about it here:

    Sounds very interesting!

    To me, GPL still means Grand Prix Legends...

    Re: Google Wave

    This is a pretty big, pretty cool idea. The paradigm itself is interesting and could be revolutionary if it really takes off.

    I'm not really interested all that much in Google's implementation of it, though, I'm more interested in the protocol. Google is kind of an Open Source company, and this could be really, really big if code's going to be open source. They say the majority of the codebase will be open... and that worries me. (Majority != All), so it's still a question of whether what Google decides to release will be all that useful to developers.

    This looks amazing, but I'm afraid that there's the good chance this may not be fully compatible with linux straight away. I'm not sure how multiplatform html5 is...

    HTML 5 is supported by Firefox 3.5 and Chromium, I don't know about other browsers but it will definitely work on Linux (there's even Google gears for linux, needed for the images drag'n'drop).
    I'm very excited about this project, it blends a lot of different but similar concepts in a very unique way, I can't wait to try it out.
    I was impressed with the developed extensions and extension support, I'm very happy that they are open sourcing it.

    Seems very much like spicebird to me.

    You must have just seen the picture not the video.

    Spicebird doesn't even tread water compared to this.

    Wehn I said linux compatibility I meant like how it was compatible with windows explorer and iPhoto. Do you think this will be compatible with nautilus and the linux desktop in the same way?

    Re: Google Wave

    When Chromium for Linux is completed, you'll be able to have Wave as a desktop application.

    Also, this sounds like the coolest thing ever.

    Re: Google Wave

    im watching the 2 hour preview right now. i suggest for everybody here to click on the "let me know when its ready" button on the right of this page. then request a linux version or discuss why you think they should make it linux compatible.

    i think that google needs to hear many many requests for a linux version for them to think about doing it.
