I've been going over the docs and the samples, and it seems very good indeed, much better than ATL Server. As I see it, it will allow SOA for native apps.
I've already thought of two uses: simplify my native apps that consume data from SharePoint (through SharePoint 2010's REST services), and for native Metro applications to communicate with Cloud services.
Hello Chris Maunder can you tell me why vasily tserekh account have been closed if HE didnt published any offensive material, you shouldn have an account automatically closed for just 5 reports of spam or abusive, if so anyone with 5 differents accounts will be able to take out any codeprojject account
He has not been active only today. Some times last week he had made some kind of 'poll' where he wanted to know wether we hate C++ or not and things got a little out of hand when we did not agree to his ideas. And last friday I also got not the best impression of him in another 'I hate C++' thread.

The account was closed because of the trolling going on in the Lounge.

Hahaha, I know I know. I was joking that it fell into the experienced cp'ian posts a thinly veiled tech question in the Lounge veiled so as to save face. I know it wasn't a question because the work around is simple. I was just giving you a hard time like I do to everyone else, and they do to me.
It's days like this I need a white, long haired cat sitting on my lap while while my finger hovers over a large red button on the arm of my tall-backed leather chair in my command post in the depths of an extinct volcanic hideaway.
