Why the acronym for Windows Workflow Foundation is WF and not WWF
Ever wondered why the acronym for Windows Workflow Foundation is WF and not WWF?
Of course, WWF would be more logical, considering the WinFX.NET Framework 3.0 (minus .NET Framework 2.0!) technologies have the following acronyms:
WPF = Windows Presentation Foundation
WCF = Windows Communication Foundation
WF = Windows Workflow Foundation
WCS = Windows CardSpace
On this slide from a TechEd 06 presentation (through JevDemon’s blog) you can find a cute explanation:
PS: For those of you who need more explanation: WWF stands for World Wrestling Federation or for World Wide Fund for Nature (Wereld Natuur Fonds in Dutch).
