You gotta love SeeWindowsVista

Have you checked out


It is a very cool way to see some amazing things that developers are doing with Vista and .NET Framework 3.0.   The site is clearly focused at end-users, but as a developer you might want to know what technology bets it took to make those apps.. I did a little poking around and here is what I was able to find out….   If there is some specific showcase you’d like to find more about please let me know.

    What about this demo is Vista-specific? I checked it out last week, and as far as I could tell there was nothing you couldn’t do on XP with ".NET 3.0".

    What about Heuristix Labs (the math applicaton demo)? that look really cool. I hope these guys release a demo version of their tools (showcased here), I’d love that math demo to be part of the Tablet PC edition 🙂

    Demos like these make me happy. Feel inspired. Ever know what happened ot thos old .NET videos. The ones where the family goes ot the zoo?

  7. Phil Wheat says:

    I still have those videos – someone needs to update them to put real products in place to show how far we’ve come (and how accurate they were.)
