    Are any developers using XAML seriously yet? Are you shipping any products with WPF functionality? I'm curious to see what people have come up with, beyond the typical MS examples/demos I've seen.

    Here's a list of current WPF applications from the wiki: http://channel9.msdn.com/wiki/default.aspx/WPF.ApplicationPortfolio

    This thread reminds me of previous threads, a while ago, that asked if anyone is actually building applications in .NET.

    Not using XAML, but have shipped/am shipping a WPF app as the front end for our digital signage solution.  On paper it was a fantastic idea, but basically two issues mean that it is borked or what we want to do.

    A little bit about my issue is here, but there is little point talking about it except for informational purposes because it will never be fixed.

       There is still no non-trivial .NET application shipped yet. Neither Microsoft or other Companies have shipped any significent applications written in managed code.

    What do you consider significant?

    Footballism, I don't agree here. There are quite a lot of .NET applications shipped. Paint.NET is pretty significant, Windows Live Writer is another one. Also think of ASP.NET: how many websites are built on ASP.NET? And speaking for myself: our company has been building .NET applications since 2003, and I wouldn't call them insignificant.

    I'm on my second significant .NET application, by which I mean 100% .NET, more that 1 year development effort. One was a shrinkwrap product (for a vertical market) while the other is bespoke.

    As for WPF?  Not in the forseeable future.  Now I'm doing bespoke, it's up to the customer to decide when they want that and I don't think they will (no business value).
    Hasn't stopped me playing with the Expression Blend betas, though.
