I don't have much to comment on this video, but I would like to see shorter videos. These

With the new version of Notepad, I can't see how I'll ever use another operating system again. Ever. Avalon had me nearly convinced, but this... This is major. I think I'll just convert any Linux testing machines I'll get in the future, into a distributed
Notepad Enterprise Team Server 2006 cluster. Drop shadow. Wow. Question: How can I get paragraph breaks in Opera?
I've watched the video, and I'm quite impressed with Microsoft's collection of Linux distros. That said, I wonder what distro folks at Microsoft (like Bill Hilf) like most, or find the most ground-breaking. Or is there really nothing special about any
I downloaded the Zam 3D beta trial, and opened a 3D truck with some simple animation. I then exported it as a XAML file. The resulting XML heirarchy was
huge. Eight megabytes o' text.
Alright, maybe not that huge, but still. That's a lot of plain-text. I'm thinking that for a somewhat complex 3D XAML model or presentation is going to be rather large -- unlike Flash, which is a binary format. Can we utilize XOP for Avalon?
My point is, how Web-friendly is Avalon? Or should a Avalon UI designer keep the 3D to a minimum for online presentations?
