    Ghostbusters:
    “there is no Danna, there is only Zuul”

    Firefox/Mozilla:
    “there is no Data, there is only XUL”

    A reference to the Ghostbusters quote, There is no Dana, there is only Zuul.


  4. Prasad

    The namespace URI (http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul
    )for XUL is a reference to the main end game villian from Ghostbusters ZUUL (who goes around saying “There is no Dana, only Zuul”)
    And also the gatekeeper and keymaster and references to the movie.

    From Wiki:

    The XUL name references the film Ghostbusters (1984), in which the ghost of an ancient Sumerian deity called Zuul possesses the character Dana Barrett (played by Sigourney Weaver) and declares, “There is no Dana, only Zuul”.

  6. easy!
    Wiki says
    The XUL(XML user interface language) name references the film Ghostbusters, in which the ghost of an ancient Sumerian deity called Zuul

    Quoting from Wikipedia:

    The name references to Ghostbusters’s ghost named Zuul …. When it possesses Dana Barrett it declares “There is no Dana,only Zuul”….Since XUL, unusually, uses XML to define an interface rather than a document, its developers adopted the slogan: “There is no data, there is only XUL”. Hence the XML namespace URI at the beginning of every XUL document:

    http://www.mozilla.org/keymast.....s.only.xul

    This in case you don’t like my cheeky comment!!

    The name of the firefox XML user interface markup language, XUL, is a reference to a dialogue from the 1984 Ghostbusters film. “There is no Dana, only Zuul” is parodied as “There is no data, only XUL” by Mozilla.

  13. vivek

    XUL – SML user interface language that mozilla uses is a reference to Zuul which is a some Sumerian gost diety thing that pops up in the movie ghostbusters.

    The developer’s of XUL (Mozilla’s XML user interface language) adopted the slogan “There is no data, there is only XUL” which is a reference to the Ghostbusters movie where one of the dialog says “There is no Dana, only Zuul”

    There is only XUL.. Ghostbusters reference.. Google would eat this question up


  16. The connect is actually XUL – which is a Mozilla project. On http://www.mozilla.org/keymast......only.xul, you will see \

    XUL


  18. xul the XML User Interface Language, is an XML user interface markup language developed by the Mozilla project

    The XUL references to film Ghostbusters (1984), in which the ghost of an ancient Sumerian deity called Zuul possesses the character Dana Barrett declares, “There is no Dana, THERE IS ONLY Zuul”

    “Keymaster” and “gatekeeper” also refer to the same film plot-line. Other references to Ghostbusters also occur within Mozilla products: for instance, the JavaScript has a debugger component called Venkman, after one of the main characters in the film.

    quoting wiki:

    “The XUL name references the film Ghostbusters (1984), in which the ghost of an ancient Sumerian deity called Zuul possesses the character Dana Barrett (played by Sigourney Weaver) and declares, “There is no Dana, only Zuul”.”

    XUL is the UI language supported by Firefox.

    Venkman is the JavaScript debugger component of the Mozilla Application Suite. It is also available as a Mozilla Firefox extension. Venkman is named after the character Dr. Peter Venkman played by Bill Murray in the movies Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II.

    Sorry for copy-paste.
