Guys, I need to share screenshots of a cool demo a friend (Waqas) as well a coworker and I developed using Silverlight 2.0. Yes this is fully interactive demo of Windows 7’s Desktop Simulation in Silverlight 2.0.

The Login Screen:

Untitled

 

The desktop:

Desktop

 

Yes its Windows 7 running inside Internet Explorer 8 under Windows 7 :P Did not find a better way to express. And yes clock gadget is also home made.

I’ll be converting this application to Silverlight 3.0 with Offline Execution support and host on Silverlight Streaming tomorrow. What? Ofcourse I’ll be sharing the code with my next post tomorrow.

So Stay tuned to play with Windows 7 :P.

Best Regards,

Rizwan a.k.a RizwanSharp

@Adil Mughal

I cannot take the credit on a thing on which Microsoft's designers worked hard :). Actually we just copied what they did.

Yes, I'll continue writing about Silverlight 3 in coming weeks.

@Martin
Article title is Windows 7's Desktop Simulation not the Windows 7 in Silverlight. And doing windowing stuff is not that hard and many people had already done... there are a lot of open source frameworks on web which already support that functionality.

Thanks,
Rizwan

HI Zeeshan,

Have you gone to http://geekswithblogs.net/RizwanSharp/archive/2009/03/29/finally-windows-7-desktop-simulation-is-live.aspx ?

It should automatically prompt you to install Silverlight and then you should be able to use the simulator.

Thanks & Best Regards,
Rizwan
