WPF: Yahoo! Messenger

#12
WLM is a total slug compared to this YIM. I wouldn't be surprised if we see a WLM WPF-version to counter it.

And the reason we may not see Ads in the final version: it's Vista only and they probably see it as a very small audience right now. Not really worth advertisements, perhaps?

phhwwoooarr, WLM has some catching up to do! That's just COOL!

I've seen a sample from the SDK (it was a medical patient monitoring tool) and THAT was awesome too. WPF gives developers some pretty decent tools.

I ran a build of the patient monitoring system as well. The code looked amazingly simple in comparison to doing anything remotely similar on GDI+..

WPF FTW.

Yeah it did look a lot easier just to tweak the interface. The only thing will be re-learning how to code in .NET and understanding how to chain animations together.

Not really, the point of WPF is that the layout can be edited by an artist and the code separated from this work. Visual Studio Codename 'Orcas' will allow teams to do this, as the IDE will automatically edit the XML for the UI, much in the same way as the current forms editor edits the /* Windows Forms Designer */ section in any form that is created, except that there won't be any code editing this time. :)
