1. Is there "future" for IBF?


  2. The people from Microsoft I spoke at the PDC in LA told me that IBF still has a future and that they are currently investigating what that future will look like. Personally I would go for VSTO for several reasons:

    1. Ease of development.

    2. Leverage knowledge of developing .NET apps

    3. ‘Ease’ of deployment.

    In my opinion IBF only adds functionallity ‘cross Office applications. E.g.: smart tags whereas VSTO is per Office application.


  3. At the TTT is was told IBF will be send into the back-end and not used by you directly, but through MS code.
