General Development The ICT-Business is known for strategic terms. One of those terms, which was used quite a lot over this year, is services. The term is interpretable; however, the focus was on technical concepts implemented to serve for a sharply rendered use case, like managing user data and authentication. Services in that sense are served over a type of network. Despite the first impression, they are not served to a user but to a calling application. This client utilizes one or more services for internal purposes. Though, the user may be expected to provide data (the password, for example) or to wait and receive a gathered result.

I think the evidence shows bonobo sucks. It's a great idea but somehow not too many people seem to be using it. This all becomes clear when you compare it to kparts or kio (sorry if I messed up the names) which just plain rock and work everywhere in KDE, while bonobo doesn't seem to have that level of ubiquity.

I'm not sure if Kparts being superior (if it actually is) has much to do with it; Nautilus doesn't use bonobo extensively by design (it's restricted to file managing, not web browsing, document viewing, etc).

No, I believe it's CORBA that sucks, bonobo is just another implementation of it.

You know that Bonobo is a piece of crap when:

1) it is a Gnome project but Gnome does not use it
2) Gnome devs know it's crap but right now there's nothing even remotely functional to replace it
3) it was developed by Miguel De Icaza

You forgot the rest of that sentence: "and even he doesn't use it anymore, having moved on to create even better things like Mono to replace it."
