.NET (dotGNU too) When speaking to developers about WinFX one question that repeatedly comes up is, "WinFX sounds great, but what happens to .NET?" Vice President S. Somasegar describes the decision to rename WinFX to the .NET Framework 3.0. Now the WinFX technology you know has a name that identifies it for exactly what it is - the next version of Microsoft's developer framework.

If they're going to go managed code, why not simply use the Eclipse/SWT/Java foundation? I mean, if you're going have to rewrite mountains of code, why not write it in a language and a framework that is multiplatform and allows flexibility in the future, if one wishes to make ones product available on alternative platforms.

Why do you have to ask why? Even Google isn't writing much thick-client stuff for Linux. About the only people that care about crossplatform these days are the open source developers. And you can ask them why they don't use much Java for the client.
