Avalon Screen Saver Contest and Longhorn Installation Tips

XAML != XUL??!?!

Avalon Screen Saver Contest Info: Develop a screen saver using the new Avalon technologies in Microsoft Longhorn and you could win a Media Center edition or an XBox — we’ll choose the best three entries designed during Microsoft’s Professional Developer Conference. Visit the PDC hands-on-labs to learn how to build your screen saver using Microsoft Longhorn and Avalon. Unfortunately, for PDC attendee’s only.

Clemens Vasters has got the “PDC build” of Longhorn running on Virtual PC. If you plan to install a copy as well, which hopefully?even the PDC absentee’s?will be able to when the alpha/beta?version is released, don’t forget to review his notes and tips on Longhorn installation. Andrej Budja writes about the Top 10 things to remember before installing Longhorn.

BTW, WinSuperSite has some Longhorn “Aero” screenshots on display.
