The Windows Live Search blog announced moments ago that the source code to Tafita has been released to Codeplex meaning that "any developer can download, modify, and resell the code (see MS-PL License for all the details)."
Tafita is a favourite of Eileen's as it provides a visual way to view Internet search results making the most of Silverlight to bring the results to life.
If you're looking for a quick and easy way to get into writing Live applications and/or Silverlight then the Windows Live Quick Application site is a great place to go - Tafita is there - it's "a set of demos developers can download and use as reference implementations or starter kits for the Windows Live Platform" according to the Windows Live Search blog.
Thanks to Dare for Tweeting about this.

<p>Interesting point at blogs.technet.com</p>
<P>Looks very interesting. I can see why Eileen is a fan.</P>
<P>Shame about the name though - just doesn't have that same ring to it does it "googling" something or "tafiting" something.</P>
