Question Seadragon?

Is something like Microsoft Seadragon being developed for Linux???

Seadragon aim is nothing less than to change the way we use screens, from wall-sized displays to mobile devices, so that visual information can be smoothly browsed regardless of the amount of data involved or the bandwidth of the network.

If this sounds a little vague, consider the following four "promises" of Seadragon:

- Speed of navigation is independent of the size or number of objects.
- Performance depends only on the ratio of bandwidth to pixels on the screen.
- Transitions are smooth as butter.
- Scaling is near perfect and rapid for screens of any resolution.

The guy says it'll work on "any device over any network". I take that to mean that it'll work on anything.

I can't help but wonder, though. What is the point of it?
