Channel 9 strikes again! They cornered Chris Anderson for an 11-minute video interview where Chris talks about the architecture of Avalon, including such juicy bits as:

  • Where Direct3D and User32 fit into the picture
  • What the heck is MILCORE.DLL?
  • The diagram-busting features in PresentationCore.DLL and PresentationFramework.DLL
  • And an introduction to the UI and composition threads (or, Why I Don't Have to Worry Much About Composition)

He briefly mentions Rory Blyth's post about a new version of Notepad. Scandalous!
