I have to get me a copy of this. VS2005 sounds so cool at the moment.           

Kent showed a simple RSS reader that can be built with the ASP.NET Whidbey alpha today.  Note that in the alpha the XmlDataSource can only databind to local XML files stored on the file-system.  With the beta we’ve added support for the XmlDataSource to also be able to bind to remote XML documents available over a network.  This will enable you to build an RSS reader populated off of remote RSS feeds (like http://weblogs.asp.net/MainFeed.aspx). 

Should make building custom reader views easy and fun….
