What's Next: VS Toolbox Reviews for February

January may have just arrived, but I'm already looking ahead to February. Next month, Visual Studio Magazine will finally respond to all the comments we got when I asked if we should be looking at Flash development in Visual Studio. The VS Toolbox section of Visual Studio Magazine in February will include reviews of the Amethyst IDE for Adobe Flash and WebOrb for integrating Flash and .NET. It's going to be an interesting review because it involves two different companies' products working in concert: WebOrb is from Midnight Coders and Amtheyst is from Sapphire Steel Software.

We're also going to be looking at another product: Infragistics' NetAdvantage for Silverlight Data Visualization. This package is a set of controls to support creating business intelligence applications. I'm hoping to have enough time to, at least, glance at their implementation for WPF.

Or do I have it backwards? Should I be concentrating on the WPF implementation and only glancing at the Silverlight -- what makes a difference to you?
