The Microsoft Max Project Is Over

    November 3, 2006

Microsoft MAX, one of the very first examples of Windows Presentation Foundation in action has sadly concluded, however I’m sure we will see even more powerful things emerge from this closing soon, especially from Windows Live!

    “Thank you for participating in the beta of Microsoft Codename Max. Over the past year, you’ve sent us tons of fantastic feedback that we’ve incorporated not only into Max, but into the platform layer with the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF).

    Thanks to your participation, we were able to accomplish the goals of the Max project-to get customer feedback on new ways to approach software and services. If you’re interested in seeing where we go with these ideas, keep your eye on Windows Live.

    Starting today, we will be disabling all downloads from our website. In the next week, we will be shutting down the Max services and our team forums. At that time, you will no longer be able to sign in to Max or share lists of photos with your friends. You will still be able to read news and browse the lists you’ve already shared and received.

    We look forward to delighting you in the future!”
