Joel vs GWT?

I don't generally read "Joel on Software", as I read I can't help but associate a self-righteous tone and a fat, patronising, American accent as I read a bunch of fluff that I generally already know. The odd article is spot on though and I have friends who read him religiously... almost.

Somebody over on the GWT Google group pointed out Joel's latest rant. I wasn't sure at first, but I thought he was trying to imply GWT was doomed to be out-done by some "NewSDK" and that people are wasting their time building AJAX applications, but then I re-read it and realised that GWT *is* the "NewSDK" he's referring to, so unless I'm missing some half-baked American irony Joel is a bit behind the times on this one.
