    1. Yes, and have shipped a product with it.
    2. Yes, and intend to ship in the next 3 months.
    2.5 (for WKempf) Yes, and will ship at some point.
    3. No, haven't even looked at it.
    4. No, and won't look at it for at least 9 months.
    5. Will wait until it is finished.

    We have a static customer list, if they don't use it, we don't code it.

    Sad

    This has to be one of the best UI kits I've ever coded with (and I've spent time with QT+, WinForms, GDI+ etc...); I've rapidly become a WPF/XAML evangelist!

    2.5 (Come on, you go from ship in 3 months to No?)

    We've been evaluating it.  I've been working on a personal project at home as part of this evaluation.  It's not set in stone, but we're likely to use it for a product in the very near future, but shipping won't happen within 3 months even if we started using it today.

    I'd like to, but I'm on the wrong platform, using the wrong programming language on the wrong kind of system.

    And none of those factors are likely to change any time soon. Sigh...

    It isn't meant to be scientific, just trying to get an idea of who/how many are looking at it. I've updated the options though - just for you Smiley

    I have played with WPF and it's really cool. But some of my tools have to run on OS/X and Linux machines too and every time when switch to the next higher .net version I run away from the current mono version. So the .net 2.0 compliant version of mono is announced for the fourth quarter 2007. .Net 3.0 is only an experimental project called Olive and will be finished 2010 or never. Who knows? But for my next windows only project I will us it.

    Understandable, but in comparison to the technology I use for a living right now (Mozilla XUL), the tools are already in very great shape! Smiley

    Honestly, for declaritive programming, I *prefer* to code the XML by hand.  I've felt that way about HTML for over a decade now, despite there being many excellent WYSIWYG editors.  So, the only complaint I have with the the current VS extensions is the poor intellisense support.  But I can live with that, and I understand it's something that will be fixed in short order any way.
