Windows sideshow

I have up untill now avoided Windows vista, but on my latest computer I got it with windows vista and it features a little sideshow display.

I have downgrade rights on the vista, but I have decided to give vista a try.

Seeing this little display, I could not help but wondering about how clever it would be to be able to display information on it from vvvv. I am thinking about displaying boygroup node id, ip address or whatever information might be relevant directly on the computer itself.

just an idea, someone could make such a plugin.


i guess this feature is called “sideshow” and there i quickly found a lot of pointers to programming it in c# on the web. see e.g. Daniel Moths blog
