WPF and the future of the Windows Desktop

So lately at work I've been working alot with WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) in conjunction with C# and producing a lot of cool content with it; especially the ease of producing powerful 3D displays. It's great to see the power and functionality it provides over simple Win32 application design, and now with the .Net 3.5 release coming soon we can expect to see a lot more features being put in place within. From what Tim Sneath has been blogging about it some of the improvements to it are definitely worth looking out for.
If anyone is interested the beta for .Net 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008 SP1 is out so you can go test out some of the new functionality yourself.
