@AndrewDover: ... but silly restrictions and barriers to side loading will prevent this awesomeness from being utilized as a migration path for most desktop applications

Please no more "getting started with kinect" articles. More of the same is not educational. The time has come to step things up a notch... show us how to solve real-world problems with Kinect. If it's gotta be more "getting started" links, at least call out what's special about this one vs. the last 47 getting started links.
Hey Greg, I've posted a new/improved implementation of this code to the thread based on feedback from Clint. Would you mind updating the code you pasted above to show the new version?
We have APIs which expose the raw image reported by our cameras at ~60FPS. You can get this and process it however you like. The very first demo we did in the PDC session was showing an SDK sample which gets this image, flips it, and renders it on the screen.
For tags in particular though, the 2 types we provide out of the box (8-bit and 128-bit) are sufficient for most needs.
Hey acuis - MultiTouchVista is not affiliated with Microsoft or Surface
The Surface SDK is being given to those who either attended our session or complete one of our 3 hands on labs (which will be open tomorrow). Also, if you were to order a developer Surface (order forms are now on surface.com), each one comes with 5 SDK licenses.
Please come by our booth in the Big Room tomorrow if you've got any more questions or want to chat!
