I had a great time tonight talking about all things XAML at the Atlanta Visual Basic Study Group. There were plenty of interesting questions and it's clear the Cider and Sparkle have come a long way, but still have a way to go. It was interesting to see how many people seemed to still tie WinFX with Vista and machine upgrades. I am glad to see how well everything runs on my XP boxes.
I was also a bit perplexed at the XAML code that we could generate with Sparkle (including samples) but Cider simply choked on. But since this is Cider's debut I can't be that hard on it.
Overall I think it was a good night to get people thinking about the next gen of smart clients.
