Win Fx

It would appear that Microsoft is investing a great deal in a new set of technologies under the rubric of WinFx. That said, for all the pages of information and support they are providiing, no where can I find a hype-free paper or set of papers that say "here are the new technologies, here's how they fit in with what you know, here is what is a replacement vs. an extension of existing technology."

Much less can I find a set of papers that gives the developer vision: if you want to create a Windows application you'll use these technologies; for Web, those.

Other unanswered questions: does .NET go away, or does it complement the new technology or morph into a new edition or is it used to build a different (older? obsolete?) UI?

It is my job to figure this out, but I can't say they are making it easy, and just to make matters worse, they have mixed together WinFx and Vista in ways that makes it very difficult to disentangle them.

I think its the way of preparing the developers into their standards. Its not difficult to understand they are all bull-crab
