Joe Beda - Is all of Avalon managed?

Download

Joe Beda, a development lead on the Avalon team (the graphics display technology in the next version of Windows), talks about whether Avalon's APIs are all "managed" which is really like asking "will the APIs be easy for .NET programmers to use?"

    I want to soften what I just said Smiley

    I think that there are some unmanaged APIs in the imaging area.  However, any new unmanaged APIs that we are releasing pale in comparison to the number and capabilities that we are releasing that are managed.

    Another way to put this, should I be so bold, is that the need to be unmanaged when writing a next generation Windows application will become the exceptional notion, not the expected behavioral pattern, in Longhorn.

    I think that is a great way of putting it.  Of course developers are still going to be able to write software using Win32 (and Win16 Smiley and assembly, but we really think that managed code is the next level and we are working to make sure that Windows has a consistent and very capable API in managed code.  The name for that effort (and we started using it at the PDC) is WinFX.  The implication here is that WinFX is the next thing after Win32.
  • Great Post. Great video. Thank you very much for the effort you put in this article.
