Subject: Re: [Caml-list] What does Jane Street use/want for an IDE? What about you?

We were discussing GUI programming in OCaml recently. I just stumbled upon 
this video "wpf graphics" that demonstrates some of the capabilities of 
Microsoft's Windows Presentation Foundation:

Linux has nothing like this. If OCaml gets a parallel GC then I think it would 
be well worth implementing an alternative GUI toolkit from scratch in OCaml 
using OpenGL and drawing upon WPF's core design that centers around a single 
unified renderer and unified (and safe!) representation. OCaml has great 
potential for GUI programming...
