Windows 7 VS2010 demo app

what the author did:

write an application that does the following:
  • Is written for Windows7 and VS2010, as such both of these are unfortunately pre-requisites (sorry about that)
  • Shows how to use the new Windows 7 TaskBar and Jumplist
  • Shows how to do drag and drop the Windows7 way
  • Uses the new Dynamic type in .NET 4.0
  • Uses the new Expando type in .NET 4.0
  • Uses the Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF), which I think will become part of the mainstream .NET runtime very soon.
  • Uses pixel shaders which are exported from one project and imported into the main project using MEF
  • Uses a true WPF WebBrowser which natively supports complex transforms and can be hosted on a 3D mesh, which if you have ever tried to use the standard .NET 3.5 SP1 WebBrowser control, know is just not possible
