I've thoroughly enjoyed watching the MIX06 keynote Live from Las Vegas. Very soon you will be able to view an on demand version at your leisure.

Prepare to be amazed at how easily you'll be able to take advantage of the exciting features provided by Windows Vista including IE 7 (for XP too) and rich development aids including ATLAS which makes implementing AJAX a reality for most developers.

The webcast itself is a little long - 2 hours 45 minutes but IMHO it's worth it. There's a demo from the BBC's head of technology that really shows what's just around the corner in terms of access to programmes and archive material.

The keynote was advertised as follows:
