THis might be a boring response (especially with the cool stuff that was shown in the video) but as a database app type guy, would love to see what Avalon (and xaml) will do for building forms and browsers and the like. I would have thought (and could be
way off the mark) that this would be the bread and butter.
I am not sure I am looking at this right (Avalon/Xaml being somewhat a replacement (for want of a better phrase) for winforms and controls (perhaps a better way of describing it is a new way to define the winform/controls)). One thing (and its minor) that I
would like to see, is better data binding with controls having labels that come from the label of the databinding. I.E. the classic is to have a textbox that is binded to a dataset/db field that gets the label from the dataset label.
