Can someone familiar with qooxdoo and YUI tell me why I should prefer qooxdoo
to YUI?  I took a look at the qooxdoo demo pages, and the controls are ugly
and unituitive, where the YUI controls and widgets are guaranteed to be
supported on *all* platforms and have a *lot* of paid full-time engineers
(*and* graphic artists) developing them for Yahoo properties.
