Conclusion

By now, you may be curious to learn more about this technology. If you don’t have the time to dive into the SDK (SDK you can get from the http://msdn.microsoft.com/windowsvista/getthebeta/default.aspx link), why not try a XAML designer?  Mobiform Software Inc. has a XAML designer entirely built on WPF. With Mobiform’s Aurora, you can drag and drop elements on to a document and then wire up your logic to the interface with Visual Studio 2005.  Better yet, integrate Aurora into Visual Studio so the whole process can be even more seamless. Go to www.mobiform.com to learn more about the Aurora and how to download a free beta copy.  Additionally, visit www.xaml.net to learn more about WPF and XAML.

Tomorrow is approaching quickly. XAML and WPF will revolutionize the way we build and display applications.  Check it out today!

Very interesting. MS definitely seems to be going in the right direction with their new foundations and SOA approach. The one comment that just kills me here is

"Since there are other smart Open Source mainframes out there I would not recommend code that is only running on one operating system."

I know this is highly debatable but I'm looking for a platform that allows me to do anything a custom needs and products work well together. This open source crap sounds great for developers but is a nightmare in a corporate environment.

Keep going MS, set a vision and align your products that allow us to easily delight our customers. Those that want the open source so you can hodge podge solutions for your customers, use the open source equivalent for WPF. The more developers that provide those types of solutions to their customers the better we look when we go in behind you after the customer has had enough.

For those who are on the fence, a suggestion is to think platforms that work in your customers environment, not solutions that silo information and leave interoperability as a pipe dream.

Good article!

If this is presented as the standard by some near monopolist, what about users of other operating systems?

Since there are other smart Open Source mainframes out there I would not recommend code that is only running on one operating system.
