XNA Beta Released

If you were intrigued by the XNA post a while back, you may want to check out the XNA website today as they have just released their first beta. I haven't done much game programming except for a brief flirtation with OpenGL. I think I'm going to wait until it is a bit more refined before I dive in.

[UPDATE] There have been some tips floating around mail threads at work. 1) Use XP or 2k3, Vista won't work with the beta. Don't worry, I'm sure it will later. 2) You need to install Visual Studio C# Express. It's a free download. This beta won't work with full versions of Visual Studio. You can have Express running side by side with your existing copy.
