Beyond HTML: Rich Internet Applications

Today I came across this great article by Rick Strahl called “Beyond HTML: Rich Internet Applications”. He gives pretty good overview of current and future situation with RIA applications. In the article you will find his opinion over the following topics:

– Windows Presentation Foundation
– XBAP
– WPF/E
– Why Flash isnt the key

PS.
in one of the comments below somebody asks where is SVG, and why isnt it mentioned. I would like to say that SVG is way out of the picture. There are several factors that are seriously on the way to provide multiplatform solution:
– Adobe officially anounced that will stop supporting that format
– Creating SVG application isnt piece of cake and sometimes supporting these is also trouble
– There isnt native browsers support, you will need to install viewers to play SVG

Here is the link to original article by Rick
