As some people may already know, we will be releasing a Windows Forms UI suite in Q3 2006. Apart from the semi-official announcement and the magazine ads, we haven't gone into much detail what's so special about our upcoming products. I'll try to explain the benefits of our WinForms controls in details in several blog posts.
As an introduction, I'd like to mention the key points which the marketing guys found attractive and which formed the marketing message of the winforms suite. I thought you might want to know some of the technical details behind the marketing message:

If you would like to see a sneak preview of all this and if you'll be attending TechEd in Boston stop by booth #819.
