Chapter 1 Introduction – good introduction. Could make the “.NET Framework as an enabler of smart clients” point more forcefully. A few high level points about how the .NET FW specifically enables smart clients, targeted towards different camps:
• Web application developers/architects
• Rich client application developers/architects that currently target:
o JRE via applets
o Native Windows
o Flash runtime

Perhaps this doc is not the place for this, but somewhere the smart client evangelism effort at MSFT should be doing a better job of arguing that the .NET Framework specifically enables the paradigm shift from all of the above approaches to .NET-based smart clients.
