WPF, UniveRSS(e) and The Panel

Just a few weeks since the .NET 3.0 has been released and I feel a little dissapointed. I was expecting a lot of new amazing stuff popping up like a mushrooms after the rain, but no, it's a bit quiet like everyone is afraid of using the new .NET. Finally, I've found the very first cool thing today - UniveRSS. What is that? It's a 3D RSS reader. Yes, it's not a mistake. Moreover, it has been released by Microsoft. Sounds good so far, it isn't?

Ok, let's start from The Panel, the website designated to show new user experience using WPF and Windows Vista.

The Panel is the place to collect showcases of the new user experiences and provide insights on how they were implemented.

Fair enough, check the website if you want to know more while I will go to the UniveRSS project, which is much more cool that The Panel itself.

UniveRSS is, like I've wrote before, a 3D RSS Reader. It means that you have a 3D view for all your feeds. According to the project description:

It introduces a full-screen 3D universe where galaxies represent the folders of your RSS feed directory, and the stars are represented by the spinning cubes that hold the feed information. Size and position of the feed cubes indicate how many unread items they contain.

Sounds very cool, it isn't? There are some screens on the website and, of course, download. Moreover, you can download sources which is even best.

Well, I didn't install Vista yet, but now I see the reason coming. Meanwhile, it would be cool if someone will download it and make some comments.

So. We have first cool WPF stuff. I remember, during the DDD3, someone show us North Face website Microsoft is working on. That was the most amazing stuff I saw in a last few months. Do you have any cool stuff in your bookmarks, and maybe you made some cool stuff with WPF? Show yourself. Let's make a list. Maybe we can set up some contest (Brendan?).

Waiting for comments and links. Meantime I will be installing Vista.
