Can i use wpf (not wpf 4.0) with 3.5 net framework to write programs for microsoft surface ?
And can I use this software (which is written with Microsoft Surface Library in the normal multitouch computer (like HP Multitouch Labtops ) ?

Thanx in Advance

Yes. Surface is written completely with WPF. There are plenty of details if you'd only use google.
I have used the newer Surface 2.0 SDK that works on Win7 touch computers as well as the Surface 2. But those apps will not work on a Surface 1. There was very little to actually change from going from Surface 1 SDK to Surface 2 SDK, so you can almost keep a single set of code that you can compile against 1 or 2.

As for a WPF app working on the surface, yes it will work and you might get some of the surface functionality, but you really need to link it against the Surface SDK to do a good job with it.

I have been doing some Surface stuff lately so I thought I would throw my 2 cents in.
