Scott Lock Thoughts on .Net, Caparea.net and Windows Phone

Have you ever been downloading a large file using IE and had to keep tabbing back to the download window to check on status?  Well one of the things added to the TaskBar as a feature Icon in Windows 7 is download progress!  I was downloading the Zune software this morning and watched the progress happen right there on the task bar.  Very cool.  One less thing I have to tab to in order to check status.  This is also true for windows explorer views as well.
