Today was the big launch of a couple products I'm working on, the Microsoft Expression suite and WPF/E.

To mark the occasion, I made a simple web version of one of my first WPF applications- a XAML viewer. All of the folks who have been working hard on WPF/E had cool projects planned for the launch today, and I decided last night I needed one as well- I'm never one to turn down a challenge.

Use your mouse wheel to zoom, drag to pan. The graphics are all done by folks on our Expression Design team, many thanks go out to them.

The project is especially appropriate for today's Expression suite announcement since I used Blend, Design and Web extensively to create it, as well as debugging in Visual Studio. The project took approximately 5 hours from scratch- I'm curious how this creation time compares to other technologies, but I'm also excited about the workflows we have planned to make this significantly easier. Easily half my time was spent working with the HTML- if people feel lost in XAML, I'm just as lost in HTML; but I'm excited to learn it.
