Re: Remember?

All that talk was MFC was going to die and all windows apps would be written in .Net and WPF. Funny thing was Microsoft never did really do so completely with any of their products so few others did commercially as well. Sure a lot of places will use it in the backend like Java for years to come and even for internal GUI app development but .Net was supposed to be the technology Microsoft was betting the company on. Metro and WinRT just empathized managed code will never be very deep in the core of Windows unlike say COM even all these years later.
