My last post from TechED was from my Windows Mobile phone, while having lunch with another 7000 TechHead's! 

Currently I'm waiting for the next presentation to begin, so I have a spare few minutes.  No more "swag" has been blagged today, although I did win a flashing blue pen for getting all the Windows 7 questions right!  Tod won one as well (the questions were not that hard:))

So, on the subject of Windows 7 – have you tried it?  If so you'll have noticed some subtle changes to the task bar.  Right click a program icon and you now get the "jump list".  Hover over and you get the frame view of all instances of that application.  The concept of the system tray and the ability to display notifications has changed, you now change the taskbar icon.  Much of this can be controlled programmaticaly and I plan to GenNet some synergy wrappers and post some sample code onto CodeExchange when I'm back in the office to show how we can implement this in Synergy.  It's the little things that can make a big difference.
