A few weeks ago we got a free seminar about user experience and WPF/e from Microsoft. It's a new kind of client side flash style embeddable object for on HTML pages. It works directly on top of Microsoft's new XAML language.

It seemed pretty cool, you can write entire scripts with c# and XAML to make flash style user interfaces for media content. Of course, like flash, you should not use it to decorate your complete website with it. Unlike flash, XAML is just xml which can be indexed by search engines. The other good news is that Microsoft decided to make this project platform independent. You can view XAML and WPF/E in IE, Firefox and safari. It looks very promising and it seems like Microsoft is actually listening to their users to make stuff crossbrowser compatible. Its a good step in the right direction.
