Overview: Longhorn is so chock-full of code-names that its difficult, if not impossible, to figure out whats what. WinFX, Indigo and Avalon all sound terribly important, but they dont give the user a clue as to what they will do. Until the user gets a look at Longhorns first public beta, though, those code-names are all the users has got. WinFX (pronounced ""Win Ef Ex,"" just like its spelled) stands for Windows Framework. This is the new Application Programming Interface (API) upon which Longhorn will be built. Longhorn will continue to support, for purposes of backward-compatibility, the Win32 API currently have.
