Thanks for the feedback. The build we were showing you was "hot off the presses" so to speak and was also accessed through TS. I wouldn't focus on the perf at this point, it's the tooling that we're trying to show you. As for the video quality I have to render it this way so you can see the screencast at the same time and also so it doesn't end up being a 2 gig download . Heh, I'm not a video editor, I'm a code junkie so I appologise for any roughness. You might try just downloading it and playing it outside the SL player to see if that helps.
Lucian is a very interesting person and a good presenter. Here's some interview questions from an Italian MVP for both Paul and Lucian.

I am behind on the How-Do-I videos but the walkthrough link I posted above details what is involved. I'll get back on the videos right after the holidays!
Thanks for your patience.
I think what Amanda is saying is that there is a very wide variety of people using Visual Basic, not only professional developers like us
I'm a bit behind on the videos but here's the link to the step-by-step walkthrough.
I don't have the sample application used but I'm working on a set of How-Do-I videos that will be posted on the VB Dev Center when they are ready. Thanks!
Thanks! I really like the format as well. Since we wanted to show you the VB Team's favorite Orcas features, I think this was the best medium to show it so you could see all the code. I'll be posting more so stay tuned.
