Using WPF/E to simulate Vista

I’ve been meaning to blog about this for a while now, and am actually quite late to the game as loads of people have already commented on it.

‘This’ is a WPF/E application using the new(ish) FebCTP which emulates Windows Vista, it is an astounding example of what WPF/E can do.  There’s the glass effects, the sidebar clock tells the correct time, the window snapshots work when you hover over an item on the taskbar and you get balloons popping up intermittently.  The best bit by far though is the picture gallery and media player.

Have a look, there are two versions, one based in the home SKUs and one based on the business SKUs.
