Client API in SharePoint 2010

With REST, ASP.NET Ajax, Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll new API - and of course silverlight all built into the new platform, our next generation of applications will have to have a major UI facelift.

You can expect much less page refreshes, more responsiveness and easier development proceess for more complex UI scenarios.

You have to keep in mind that SP2010 wiki pages do support web parts, but do not support postbacks!

So using these client-side calls will be almost mandatory if you wish to provide advanced controls and feature rich compoents in your pages.
