What happened to SimpleText?

If you have played with both the PDC and the WinHEC build of Longhorn (Build # 4074) and in your small applications if you had a class called SimpleText – that code would now give an exception in the new build with the error “Class not found”. So out of curiosity I asked on the newsgroups what was up with it and found out that Microsoft has consolidated their three classes to handle text to two – which help solve some of the confusion. Filipe Fortes who is the Avalon PM also discusses it in a blog here.

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
