Late last friday Microsoft announced through SomaSegar’s (Vice-President) Blog that WinFX will now be called .NET Framework 3.0. The underlying CLR, C#, ASP.NET, ADO.NET, VB.NET and everything else will continue to be 2.0, but .NET 3.0 will include WCF (a.k.a Indigo), WPF (a.k.a Avalon) & WWF (Workflow). It seems to be a good marketing idea, I just hope they bundle the core framework (2.0) files into one single redistributable.

Enterprise Customers tend to believe on third version of Microsoft products – so I suppose those will get excited about this.
