Is Microsoft backing away from VS 2008's WPF support or are you just not highlighting it?
VS2008 still includes WPF support, AFAIK... Why, did you hear something different?
<sarcasm>I heard they were ditching ADO.NET in favor of LINQ, though... gonna have to change your name from "ADOGuy" to "LINQ to SQL Guy"... kinda loses its ring a little :)</sarcasm>
