It’s been 3 months since we released Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 on Nov 6th 2006. In this short duration, I have already witnessed developers having a good uptake of .NET 3.0 apps for Windows Vista. So I thought why not blog about these real-world apps, showing how the developer community is embracing Vista technology, and creating cool WPF apps. I have gathered up a number of the most exciting apps we currently have, and will go into detail about them over the next few days. To start us off, one of the most exciting ones we are seeing is the Yahoo Messenger Client for Vista.
Built from the ground up specifically for Microsoft Windows Vista, this new version combines the Yahoo! Messenger with the cutting-edge experience of Vista.
By the way, if you are working on Windows Vista/.NET 3.0/WPF apps that you’d like to share with everyone, please send them to me. A brief description, a link to the app if it’s in the public doman, and a screen shot will be great, as a picture is often worth a thousand words.
