WPF/Everywhere (WPF/E) what’s the scoop?


At MIX 06 WPF/E was announced Tim Anderson (ITWriting) posted a thorough story highlighting Microsoft’s attention to user experience along with technical insight to the capabilities of WPF/E.


He talks about how "Under the hood, XAML applications are also .NET Framework applications."


He also elaborates how there is wide variety of support "WPF/E has broad scope. It is aimed at devices as well as desktop or notebook computers, though the device support will follow later than the initial Web release."


Including Microsoft will support many "platforms directly, including Safari and FireFox on the Mac, Opera, FireFox and IE on Windows, and possibly Linux and Solaris. "


SO? Will JavaScript still be around? Well...Tim says: "Javascript is the glue that connects the WPF/E applet to the web page. "
