Does anyone know: Is WPF Considered "open" like .net is, or is the fact 
that "W" stands for Windows in it mean that it is inherently closed..

Incidentally, i was just looking at Visual Studio 2010 (not 2012, 
haven't tried it yet) last night and i noticed the default project type 
is still Winforms, WPF is secondary on the list.

I wonder if the new Metro style apps in windows 8 means microsoft is 
going in yet another direction post-wpf.
