@Charles: kudos... thanks for opening the vault 😃
If the project would follow-through... could prove to be offering similar to GWT, but for .NET... was there no appetite for it?
Charles, any reason why this video was held back?
After a while you don't see the code anymore... in this Modern WPF Matrix "Rain" control. And more on Modern too...Aug 20, 2013 at 5:12 PM
WPF is cool...
XAML is awesome
XAML Spy makes it shine.

@ Matej Cepl, sweet, thanks... and so it has began.
If MS would in early 2000's, after .NET began; push CIL as a common (low level) browser language (in IE, Mozila, Opera, etc..); the future would have been a lot brighter. Developers could target it using any "human language" of their choice, which was the promise of .NET/CIL.
... easy for me to say, now

LINQ substituted T-SQL (assembly language of the Database),
Making a way with the web assembly language, would be next logical step. It would be a realization of many smart people.
Happy to hear that Roslyn Project is doing well...
Last 10 years of language innovations... and now we are heading towards "Scripting" (aka hacking)?
TypeScript/Dart = C
???? = C++
???? = C#
Can we fast-forward, and get to C# type language (with .NET Framework set of libraries, and XAML for UI) for building "browser apps". On desktop we already have great developer story. Kudos to Anders, Cwalina, Abrams, Gossman for making this happen.
* "browser apps" that is an oxymoron
Great improvements to Rx Bart. Keep the good stuff coming...
Over the years, following Rx videos on C9; it has helped me to think outside IEnumerable box; to solve problems in more declarative/reactive way using Rx Operators.
With tremendous performance improvements; Rx just got a great boost for real-time systems (which can't be build with IEnumerable mind-set).
