Where Is the Windows Presentation Foundation?

You can find the Windows Presentation Foundation in Windows XP today if you install the .NET 3.0 Framework. Just follow up your install with a copy of Microsoft Expression Interactive Designer (one of many new tools being built using Windows Presentation Foundation), and you have your first example of a complete Windows Presentation Foundation solution (see Figure 1).
