    This post is inspired by an interesting blog in which the author notes

    "When Marc Clifton criticized the illogical MS-XAML syntax, he was not the only person complaining. Everyone hates the compound property syntax. Instead of making changes, I see MS posts critical of MyXaml, the open-source XAML for Windows Forms developers, designed as a clean alternative to MS-XAML"

    I thought, if that's the case, it's worrying. MyXaml is VERY interesting to me and my gut feeling is that it's just as interesting to the softies working on XAML.

    What are your thoughts on Marcs work?

     Well, if he hates it so much, why does he not stop using it? In my opinion, i LOVE the syntax.. Come on Microsoft, give us some more complex stuff!! (I'm serious)
