      The links to the tutorials listed here in the Channel 9 page are out of order. Just go to the intro tutorial at the actual create.msdn.com website and follow there.

      Is it possible to make the text portion of the tutorials available as a downloadable XPS/PDF ebook?  It would be helpful since I do not have internent access at home and can't really spend work (non-programming) time on it during the day.
