What is WPF and XAML

WPF:

Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is the code-name of the presentation (user-interfaces) sub system in Windows Vista programming model and is used to create user interfaces.

In broad way WPF is the engine that is responsible for creating, displaying, and manipulating user-interfaces, documents, images, movies, and media in Windows Vista.
Physically, WPF is a set of libraries that have all functionalty you need to build, run, execute, and manage Windows Vista applications.

XAML:

XAML is a new descriptive programming language developed by Microsoft to write user interfaces for next generation managed applications.

Relation between XAML and WPF:

XAML is a new descriptive programming language developed by Microsoft to write user interfaces for next generation managed applications. XAML is used in WPF to represent the controls and code with the help of C#, Visual Basic, and other .NET Framework languages.
XAML can be think as ASP.NET and/or Windows Forms in Windows Vista. For example, to write a Web application in .NET 1.0, 1.1, or 2.0, you use ASP.NET and to write Windows Applications, you use Windows Forms. Now in Windows Vista and .NET 3.0, you will use XAML instead of Windows Forms and ASP.NET.

Which Operating Systems support WPF:

Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2003 Server.
