IIRC, Microsoft didn't publish that Vista is going to be completely based on .NET. Well, they did in the beginning and later said its not going to be. I am not surprised if Vista is not built on .NET.
But the 3 pillars WPF/WCF/WFS are (I think) completely .NET
I see .NET as a separate piece which can integrated later on. I am waiting for WinFS(holy grail)....
