Native Silverlight Graphing - Does it exist?

Googling churns up a TON of charting options for Silverlight 4, but does this version of Silverlight have any kind of built in charting?

What I want to do is show a pie chart, make each slice clickable, and on click generate a different pie chart with "drill down" information.

Looking for two things in this question:

1 - Does Silverlight offer anything native (no third party downloads, purchase, license, etc.)

2 - Even if yes, if you know of something else you would suggest for such a need - please post the name/link/whatever of that something.  License type is not important at this point.

I'll be splitting points among any helpful answers.  Thanks in advance

Silverlight doesn't have it "built-in", but the Silverlight Toolkit (http://silverlight.codeplex.com/) has a lot of chart types, and is created by people on or related to the SL team at Microsoft, so it is about as close as you can get. Plus it is free...

Also, I should point out that if you look at the sample pie charts (http://www.silverlight.net/content/samples/sl4/toolkitcontrolsamples/run/default.html) you will see that you can animate the slices, so you could either drill down by clicking on a slice and having a new chart appear, or by clicking on a slice and having the slices themselves rename/add & remove/resize to fit the new data.
