PDC: WinFx...is the .Net name disappearing ?
I enjoyed the PDC keynote and certainly it means a lot of new stuff to learn and to play with.
I found it interesting that a roadpath slide was shown indicating the transition from win32/ .Net Framework to WinFx. WinFx being the name to the class framework of Indigo,Avalon,WinFs and the “fundamentals”. When .Net was first marketed everything was branded as .Net. However, eventually Microsoft realised that this was just confusing the market and started to say that .Net just refers to the framework running on Windows and talked about .Net connected applications.
So is the “Whidby” version of the framework the last time where the moniker .Net will be used ???
