I do interface design for my company and just started experimenting with
XForms this past week. I was able, using fdesign and msql, to develop a
front end to a database to keep track of info I keep on my personal web pages
(so I can dynamically create them now, instead of maintaing static pages).
This took all of about a week to do. I was stunned at how easy it was. The
only problem I had was that fdesign seemed to want to resize the top level
forms periodically, without my approval. :-) Other than that it works
beautifully. So does msql.

I don't use XForms at work yet, but I may start to. I wouldn't use it for
our commercial distributions just yet, but I would use it for in-house
tools. No plans to do so at this time, however.
