Microsoft Surface is built with .NET 3 + WPF

Scott Guthrie reveals on his blog that the amazing, futuristic Microsoft Surface appliance uses .NET 3 and WPF under the hood. (However, the Surface website is built with Flash instead of Silverlight. :-))


the Surface website is built with Flash instead of Silverlight - Why becos.. the flash plugin is distributed to around 99% of IE users. Microsoft does not want users of Surface website to put more effort into installing Silverlight plugins. I think they should have made it manadatory for users of Surface website install Silverlight plugins to IE7 or firefox, that way they could have distributed Silverlight plugins to a lot users..

Actually, read the comments to the site referenced above: MS will begin dogfooding Silverlight once the final version is released.
