What'll be the final name of this? Is this related to MILcore? Can you give some more info on the architecture of this? This has so much potential for eye-candy. Why isn't Windows 7 and bundled apps filled with effects based on this? Same reason again?
"We did not want to use something which itself was getting built" like you said for Avalon? MS needs to showcase some production quality apps built using this for developers to use it actively, need to expose its use in the UI, otherwise it'll remain under
the wraps. And will this be available downlevel on Vista and XP?
