    "Welcome to the second edition of the Beta Experience newsletter!

    It is April now and the next CTP (Community Tech Preview) of Windows Vista
    still a few weeks out. If you do not have access to the latest CTP (February
    CTP, Build 5308) you can still download WinFX and the Windows SDK and start
    developing WinFX applications on Windows XP.
    ------------------------------------------
    Nevertheless we want to give you an idea what's coming up in terms of user
    interface changes and improvements. Have a look at the videos demonstrating
    present versions of Windows Vista below.

    But User eXperience is not only about new features. As developers, we need
    to step back and rethink what is useable and user friendly, instead of just
    adding flashy effects. The Windows shell team has done a lot of background
    work and I want to present you an example how we are reworking dialogs in
    Windows Vista."
