Just imagine how incredibly efficient these things can be made if we all develop them together in the same way as other free software such as Linux, gcc, emacs, ghostscript, etc., is developed! There will be FAQ's, HTML (and PS) manuals, very high portability, user friendly interfaces, mailing lists and bulletin boards (news groups) for discussing development and usage, documented patches, and continous development! These ideas also hold for loads of software used in reasearch and we may also consider such projects in the future.
This is a collection of some nice on-line examples that could be starting points for such projects (requires a client with Java support, e.g. Netscape Navigator 2.0). The authors of these demonstrations do not take part in the project (yet?!). The Java language has only been out to the public for a few months and we expect an enormously rapid development!
