Web hosting is typically 1 server only.Bass said:What do people mean when they say "cloud hosting"? Sounds a lot like web hosting to me. Okay you can run arbitrary programs? Sounds a lot like a shell account to me.
Right, after some rumination, we need to get down to the nitty-gritty of the thing.
If this is an OS in the cloud, It is an OS nonetheless, as it has been endorsed as such by Microsoft. I'm sure you all know that OS's do not come cheaply from Microsoft.
How much is this all going to cost?
I don't think you've drawn out a realistic budget for your WPF designers. Winforms at present has a whole host of controls that don't need to be developed from scratch, unlike WPF.DarrenP said:One thing that I've found really great about WPF is the ability for designers and developers to work on the same application, really simplifies things for me, knowing that I can focus more on the design and leave the developers with the logic.DarrenP said:*snip*
I've had a few developers tell me that they can make the same quality applications using WinForms, it just takes more work, but is offset by not having to learn WPF.

Not at all, it is very important for business. I know a business that uses Red Prairie [in the Bob Muglia demo], and that is the stuff that keeps a whole host of retail stores working. I'm talking the biggest chains in the country.
The keynote is all about Architects and people that build systems, and is a planet away from a parallel for loop. I would say it would have put most people to sleep, but the decision makers would have enjoyed it.
I was sceptical, but I can see the significant benefit that this offers. Just as well I got my MCTS book on WCF last week. Seems like a worthwhile investment.

So far, the overriding question I have is why an Enterprise Company would ever relinquish control of their data and ultimately their company to the cloud?blowdart said:
If you have an application that is downloaded by millions, irrespective of what it is written in, it will never be axed. Ever!Verve said:Most here are trying to blame WPF but it is very possible the decision had nothing to do with technology what so ever.vesuvius said:*snip*
