Personally, I dont see what's so revolutionary about XAML. It's been done over and over again before (glade, XUL, etc. comes to mind).

The avalon niche seems to be filled by cairo to some extent.


WinFX is likely to be managed wrappers over the Win32 API. Nothing to write home about.

To me, the only interesting stuff in the Longhorn stack is Indigo. It seems to me that it will have a profound impact on how applications will talk to each other.

Read Miguel's view on the Longhorn stack.
