I say this at every given opportunity (on the blog, in my talks etc) but it is so important I thought I'd dedicate a permalink to it.

If you are a developer and have installed Vista, the first thing you should download is the Windows SDK. It is in there that you can find goodies such as Vista Bridge or the SideShow simulator. There is also plethora of native samples for the 7000 new native APIs in Windows Vista. In addition, you'll find tons of managed samples for .NET v2.0 and .NET Framework v3.0. This makes sense since the Windows SDK is the unification of what was known as the platform SDK and the dotnet SDK. Download it now!
