Directors on Thursday, October 2nd 2008.
You may have already heard about the exciting possibilities offered by
Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Silverlight from Microsoft.

wondering how to improve developer productivity by merging and
simplifying the programming models for web versus client-server user
