As announced a few weeks ago, Microsoft combined the components of WinFX under a new brand name:  .NET Framework 3.0.  The .NET Framework 2.0 will be included as a part of the .NET Framework 3.0, along with several other new technologies.  Confused yet?  

The components of the .NET Framework 3.0 are as follows:
  • .NET Framework 2.0 (runtime)
  • Windows Workflow Foundation
  • Windows Presentation Foundation
