On Tuesday I met with a few of our ISVs technical architects to think through opportunities for ISVs with Vista other than the "obvious" ones (which really meant - what interesting stuff could we do that was not .NET Framework 3.0). One topic we got onto was Sideshow. We bounced around some ideas - but one challenge we had was that none of us had really looked at it - doh! So today I have taken a look - and in general I like what I found.

And now you understand what it really is... check out the beta SDK for Sideshow, setup the simulator and let your imagination run wild...
