    I love the way Glenn explains things, and then to top it with John's clear direction, it's just a great TV show Smiley


    I'd like to get a bit more explanation about MEF in partitioning multiple Projects v.s. multiple XAPs. You guys went over that a bit too quick and deserves a better break down;


    Thank you guys!

    I really dig the whole 'stable composition' aspect of MEF, along with the command line static analysis that it enables - esp. when there's a lot of fine grained composition. To paraphrase Don Box: "MEF is Love".

    Funny how Glenn Block made it clear he "inerited" CAB.  LOL.  He must know how Obama feels right now.  Hopefully Obama pulls out a "Prism" this year.  Anyways, good job turning that CAB around into Prism, Glenn.  I'll never forgive the PnP team for CAB.  LOL.

    I feel the answer to switching to large Silverlight applications is to use a .aspx(Ajax)/Silverlight hybrid.  Change a aspx form to Silverlight one at a time. The problem I have is with sharing the authentication system. I'd like to login with the built-in .aspx membership system and have Silverlight 'know' that I'm logged-in and use that information when I call the web services.
