Golo Haas, a german software architect, just published a Blog Entry ( The technology formerly known as … ) about his discovery of WinFX being renamed to .NET Framework 3.0.
Today – when doing some research for a new article about the Microsoft InfoCard technology – I just found out that WinFX was renamed; by the way, InfoCard was renamed as well, it is now Windows CardSpace. WinFX’s new name is … .NET Framework 3.0.
Microsoft renamed quite a lot Technologies in that sector and it’s almost a bit confusing by now. I found this picture to clarify the change:
The .NET Framework 3.0 / WinFX will ship with Windows Vista and will also run on Windows 2003 Server and Windows XP. According to Microsoft Windows Vista will ship in the first Quarter of 2007.
