I noticed that neowin has a story with a screenshot of sideshow. (This is not the longhorn one). I do suggest that people check it out, but check out this research paper instead of thier silly screenshot. The research paper has a number of screenshots. Sideshow has been one of my distractions at microsoft over the last year. I’ve written a ticket that tells me what’s being served at my cafiterria; one that hooks into my test machine automation informing me of when automated tasks are completed and the overall status of my machines; and even one that (with some hacking around in radio userland) tells me how many news items are waiting in the aggergator with a popup of the top ten. Double click the ticket and I get the web page or application to do more in. And there is still more that I have an itching to create.
