What does AFX stand for?

Question:
I see the term "AFX" everywhere in the MFC source code. For example, "AFX_MSG_MAP". What does it mean?

Answer:
I once asked this of Jeff Harbers, one of the original members of the AFX team. He replied: "The 'AF' stands for `application framework.' The `X' is just cool."
