O'Reilly hosts first external Longhorn RSS annotation feed 

Longhorn SDK Annotations Microsoft has added a new experimental facility to the MSDN library. The Longhorn SDK can display extra content from external sources alongside Microsoft's own documentation. At the PDC, Microsoft only showed one part of this feature: the discussion forums associated with each MSDN page. However, you can also choose to view annotations from selected external sources. Working closely with Microsoft, O'Reilly has seized upon this new feature to deliver its own, independently written commentaries on selected Longhorn SDK documentation entries via an RSS feed hosted at oreilly.com. . . . Note that annotations currently work only on the web-based version of the SDK. You will not see them on a locally installed copy of the SDK documentation. They also require version 1.1 of the .NET Framework to be installed on your machine, and they are only supported when using Internet Explorer.
