XWT seems to very good and easy to implement design intention. I love
it, and thanks to great challengers.

But I think SWT has different philosophy, SWT aims to give friendly
native UIs to user. Support full css with SWT will be very hard because
of native resource restriction.

* So I wonder, Why XWT Uses SWT to render? *

And there is no computer which does not have graphic acceleration
hardware. So I think, Eclipse's new UI must consider this change of
environment. We don't have to use native UI for just fast response now.

Brand-new OS will provide own specific features, So SWT will cost more
much and much. New function will be delivered always late. And it just
give us poor restricted API.

SWT was good alternative solution for many years, But I think, not any more.
