I really liked this one… especially the “Today in History”!
I also tried the Orcas download (all 1.1 GB of it) - I got Windows Server 2003, but no Visual Studio!

Today in History
April 27, 4977 BC - Universe is created, according to Kepler
On this day in 4977 B.C., the universe is created, according to German mathematician and astronomer Johannes Kepler, considered a founder of modern science. Kepler is best known for his theories explaining the motion of planets.
Kepler was born on December 27, 1571, in Weil der Stadt, Germany. As a university student, he studied the Polish astroner Nicolaus Copernicus' theories of planetary ordering. Copernicus (1473-1543) believed that the sun, not the earth, was the center of the solar system, a theory that contradicted the prevailing view of the era that the sun revolved around the earth.

No, in that way, they’re not different at all. Just like OOP produced lots of libraries that were useful to a single application, SOA will produce services that are useful to a single application. It’s impossible to think generic when you’re dealing with one specific problem. That said, OOP was, and is, used all over the place because it reduces complexity for individual developers. Services offer the same benefit.
