What is in a name?


Whilst drinking my first cup of coffee this morning and browsing my daily feeds, it occurred to me that Prism as a moniker is far more extensible and composite in nature than the official title of the product: Composite WPF. The reason being that once you introduce Silverlight into the mix it's no longer Composite WPF.

  • Composite Silverlight?
  • Composite XAML?
  • Composite .NET?

I find it amusing that the "marketing" title for the product does not live up to the product that it allegedly describes. Apparently for legal beagle reasons we cannot keep the lovely handle Prism as a product name.
