Infragistics and Silverlight

In a great blog listing  today, Tim Sneath discusses Infragistics just released NetAdvantage control set for WPF. In his excellent write up, Tim links to this incredible screenshot from Infragistics of an app that they "very quickly" build with WPF and their controls

Yowza!

This is great news, but being a total Silverlight Geek, I was immediately jealous: hey, where's ours

<slap!> One company, one team.  <slap!>

Yeah, but awww….

Well, <whew> I was glad to see that Infragistics is on on the case!  Turns out that they are already building some prerelease 2.0 control prototypes, including this cool gauge,

I'll try to give some exposure to other companies that are also working on control sets for Silverlight 2.0 from time to time.  There are a lot of exciting things cooking.

Could be!
Who knows?
There's something due any day;
I will know right away,
Soon as it shows…

Could it be? Yes, it could.
Something's coming, something good,
If I can wait!
Something's coming, I don't know what it is,
But it is
Gonna be great!
