Windows API vs. DotNet 3.0 (WinFX)

Hello,

Does .Net 3.0 offering the same possibilities like Windows API?

is .NET 3.0 going to replace the win32-api in Vista/Longhorn?

No Access anymore to win32-api in Vista/Longhorn?

Not completely. It was a glorious goal, but some of the WinAPI still exists
under Vista.

Hello Markus,

WinAPI is too big to be completly replaced by .NET
..NET only covers some (most used/popular) parts of API, and for some cases
you need to use Platfrom Invoke to call you WinAPI functions to get the required
functionality
