quite the opposite. Vista will be the first OS platform written on fully
managed code, rather than the current framework which in many cases is
simply a managed layer utilising old win32 api calls e.g GDI

Nope, .Net is the future.... C & C++ will become obsolete....

XAML is nothing compared to the .NET framework, XAML is actually going to
depend on .NET as a backend, along with Indigo and avalon (which are all
programmed through .NET also, they are just extensions of it)

From what I have heard from MS, it will be *almost* fully managed. Not
completely but except small bits here and there, yes it will be. MS Watch
saying that it won't be based at ALL on the .Net framework is just fake as
far as I'm concerned. I think they are just trying to see their newspapers
by putting in shocking details that cannot be disproved by MS because it
might reveal things that they weren't going to discuss before. That is just
my thoughts though....

Some new APIs (like Avalon) will be written mostly in managed code but
they are certainly not rewriting existing native APIs in managed code.
That just wouldn't make sense.

To put is simply, Vista is just upgrading .Net and better integrating
it. It will not replace it.

I've seen that article many times... Any confirmation? I haven't seen
any besides this. MS still has the WinFX API up.

No, I don't have any confirmation. I don't think that the WinFx API won't
get published. However, maybe Microsoft doesn't plan to use it for their
applications. The base technology of Avalon seems to be implemented in C++
and exposed to COM too. The ".NET Avalon" is AFAIK only a wrapper around
the C++/COM implementation.

I didn't know there was a COM wrapper... What I had mostly heard was
that it was written in C++/CLI. But, that may not be the case. To be
honest, I've been to busy to keep up with all of this :)
