Hey Pivot Team;

I examined your project for getting more information, its great, screens
look beautiful. Moreover, I asked some question to myself about the
technology you are using, some of them are below;

I admission that I just overpassed the document, so maybe I am wrong and
question maybe meaningless.

- Why you created own set of widgets using Java2D instead of using core Java
Swing component set?
- What is the difference between JavaFX  usage on the client side and Pivot?
Why the people uses Pivot? It is usage easier than JavaFX, or runtime
- Do you have any plan for creating Html/JavaScript/CSS rendering? Because
there were lots of problems that the people avoided the use of applets in
the browser.

Thanks ;
