    I have in the last time seen alot videos about WPF(Avalon), and really want to try it out.

    Is WinFX ready for just playing arround, or is it too unstable(The 64bit build)?

    Any advice, about this?

    It seems pretty stable at least to me. Just a word of warning: the 64 bit version of WinFX does not currently support media (audio and video).

    You can still use media if you install WinFX on a 64 bit system, but only if you mark your application explicitly for CPU type x86 (instead of AnyCPU which is the default for everything except C++/CLI), which causes it to use the 32 bit framework even on a 64 bit OS.
