Reading information about the new Windows Operating System. I have found the 
following interesting paragraph.


   For Longhorn, desktop executables are the next version of today's Windows 
Forms client-side apps. On the other hand, XAML and browser-hosted 
applications represent an evolution of today's client-side programming model 
to work over the Web. Right now, existing client-side applications can rarely 
be deployed over the Web. If you want to embed a Windows Forms form into a 
browser page, you'll get a reduced feature set and have to tweak bits and 
pieces of your code. With Longhorn, the common application model will let you 
write one application and deploy it over the Web. However, the final 
application is Longhorn-specific—very different from a traditional Web 
application like ASP.NET.
