What is Windows Presentation Foundation?

Windows Presentation Foundation is the name for Microsoft's unified presentation subsystem for Windows. It consists of a display engine and a managed-code framework. Windows Presentation Foundation unifies how Windows creates, displays, and manipulates documents, media, and user interface, which enables developers and designers to create visually stunning, differentiated user experiences that improve customer connection. When Windows Presentation Foundation ships, scheduled for 2006, it will be available on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and all future releases of the Windows operating system. When delivered, Windows Presentation Foundation will become Microsoft's strategic user interface technology.
