Windows 7 Managed Code APIs

Have you ever tried to use some Windows APIs in programming languages other than C/C++?
You had to write some wrapper classes and that was really a time consuming and some times a complicated job, and some times you may ended doing that job, canceling the entire project, or using C/C++.

Some APIs are easy to implement in other programming languages, but some are really challenging.

Here is a good news for .NET developers: Microsoft announced "Windows API Code Pack for Microsoft .NET Framework"

Simplifying the use of Taskbar, Libraries, Sensor, and multi-touch from your .NET application.

Here you can read more about this pack and you can download it from here.
