    Here is what MS told me a few days ago. Note the last bit and feel free to ask anything that I can pass along.

    Well, if you installed WindowsXP on VirtualPC 2004 and then installed Avalon on top of that, I see no reason why not :)

    Bear in mind that this is a set of APIs for developers...not to be confused with Aero.
    Basically, this will allow you to write your own applications using Avalon. You will need a copy of the Whidbey (VS .NET 2005) beta if you're a MSDN subscriber. If not, there is a set of free "Express" IDE's available for various languages (C++, C#, VB.NET etc).

    I actually do have it installed and tried some of the code samples available online. It's fun. :)

    I should have mentioned a couple of places where you can find out more:

    http://blogs.msdn.com/danlehen
    http://www.simplegeek.com/

    Dan Lehenbauer (the first blog) is the person from the Channel9 video who works on the 3D aspect of Avalon. Chris Anderson (second blog) is also on the Avalon team. Both blogs are great sources of info, and you can find links to some code samples that you can download, compile and run. :)



    I did interview with the Avalon team in Redmond two weeks ago =)

    Yeah, it did cause some amount of confusion around the web. ;)
    It might still be worthwhile downloading the Avalon CTP, even if you aren't interested in development. It does allow you to run Avalon applications created by other people. :)
