CloudCasts Blog Webcasts in the Cloud
13:00 Tuesday saw the public availability of the virtual image congaing the “Bits” from the Microsoft Connected Systems Division (CSD). The image contains early builds of a lot of the technology that is being demoed at the PDC, and also a set of hands-on labs that will walk you through some examples of using the technology.
The “Oslo PDC-08 CSD Bits Review” webcast will take a quick tour of what is available, and give you some tips on learning about all the new goodies.
The main components that are installed on the image are as follows:
·         The preliminary release of software for code name “Oslo” and code name “Dublin”, including:
o   “Oslo” repository
o   “Oslo” SDK
o   “Quadrant”
o   “Dublin”
o   XAML Import/Export tool
·         Documentation for code name “Oslo” and code name “Dublin”, including:
o   Help
o   Hand-On Labs
·         Windows Server® 2008 Standard operating system without Hyper-V, including:
o   Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0
o   .NET Framework 3.0 (includes ASP.NET)
o   Windows® Communication Foundation
o   Windows Communication Foundation Test tools
o   Windows Workflow Foundation
·         Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2010 Workflow Designer
·         Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0
·         Microsoft SQL Server® 2008 Enterprise Evaluation
·         Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 with Service Pack 1 (SP1)
·         Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Team System
·         Administration Pack for IIS 7.0 CTP2
You will need a pretty fast box to run the image as it’s based on Server 2008 and really needs about 4G ram, a fast proc, and fast drives to run efficiently. If you are stuck with an old laptop you can always download the ”Oslo” SDK and run that on bare metal. “M” and “Mg” will keep you busy for a few days.
I hope you guys can download it in less time that it took me to upload it.

It looks real cool! I can't wait to see Microsoft's implmentation of MDD. Can you provide the URL to download the VPC image.
