It would seem to me that the ability to write C# and VB.NET code that runs in Silverlight and on the Safari Web Browser on the Mac means that we just might see a full .NET Framework for the Mac sometime in the future. Yes, I know about Rotor, but I mean something that is supplied and supported by Microsoft and runs on the Mac. It would pretty much mean that .NET would win the front end client war again. We would have Microsoft's APIs on Windows (obviously) and the Mac. Realistically, there aren't any other front ends out there as the two of them are at least 90% and probably 95% of the front end desktop marketplace. Thoughts?
Sweet, there is an update Futures CTP. The download is over 50 MB, so I assume that there is documentation included with it.
Overview (from the MS download page):
The Microsoft ASP.NET Futures May 2007 (“Futures”) release
contains an early developer preview of features providing a wide range
of new functionality for both ASP.NET and Silverlight™. The
functionality in the Futures release includes early experimental
versions of features currently being considered for future versions of
ASP.NET and the .NET Framework. The Futures releases assume prior
knowledge of the core features of ASP.NET including the previous
ASP.NET AJAX Futures January CTP.
Features in this release include ASP.NET Silverlight server controls,
new functionality for ASP.NET AJAX Extensions, dynamic data controls,
enhancements to dynamic languages, and more.
If you have tried the new grid control (ListView) in Visual Studio .NET
Orcas Beta1, you may have noticed that the control has to be registered
within the page. To get around this, I had to do two things:
the System.Web.Extensions assembly with the project. Apparently, this
assembly is not registered with the projects by default.
- Add the <add
assembly="System.Web.Extensions, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" /> entry to the pages ->
controls section of the web.config file. Once I did these two items, I
got my intellisense and I didn't have to worry with the registration
commands on every page.
We have some new new books coming out. Here they are:

Hmm, I don't know about feedback on features besides Visual Studio, but this would seem like a good place to start. Thanks guys.
