yeah, sorrry, , I've had my hope up too, and just got my bubble burst,
all I wanted was WCF and MEF, I knew WPF had no chance with the current Dev Div exec, they are still set on proving metro doesn't suck and giving it it's fourth name "Universal" ,maybe if they faceplant bad enough and fast enough,something can be salvaged, I not holding my breath.
I remember glenn block himself say WCF was core .Net, he was rightly proud with good reason,
so I check MSDN and sure enough
Windows Communication Foundation, a core component of .NET Framework 3.0.
but this isn't core .Net its .Net core. .net core is new and nimble so it have the new Odata(no thank you)WCF in name only,(thanks again Dev Div, my bestest frenemies)
and MEF Componentmodel is also core .Net but it's not .Net core. so it got a similar treatments.
not only are they not gonna be get supported, they are being sabotaged with inferior RT garbage.
so it looks like same ol(new) microsoft. take at look at whats on github, I would call it ASP.Net.Not.VNext , I real hate that VNext, what are they gonna call the next version VNextNext.
what a disappointment and waste of time. shame on me for me for being stupid. how they get by making there specious statements I'll never understand, they never said "core .Net" it's . "Net Core, a new nimble reimagineering for the fast and fuild , cloud first, mobile first world" , just shameless .
not sure I can even continue with WPF now, feels a little dirty right now.
as far as you web path, I been building a web stack for a while now, node-webkit is a good component, I would look a everything and see how it fits your needs, react is very cool,bootstrap and bootstrap forms,mongoose or nosql, there a ton of great tools, I'm working on something super cool with HTML5 canvas, which I'm gonna focus on for now. good grief what a mess.
