Windows Presentation Foundation - a GUI framework for application development on Windows made by Microsoft for .Net utilizing DirectX rather than the older GDI. It is, in contrast to older GUI frameworks, completely vector graphics based, and thus resolution independent. WPF also separates the interface from the business logic and uses an XML-based language called XAML for its declarative part. The browser plugin Silverlight can be seen as a subset of WPF.
