|It seems no one noticed the real killer feature:|
Depending on the media content, a different view can be used. For example an icon view with thumbnails, a list view showing most attributes of files, a view showing pictures. Everything is possible and views are pluggable modules.
Which is, if I understand it right, means plugin based windows content display. You can make DOpus alike plugin, content previews based on mime types, whatever, almost everything you please. Hopefully the specs will be in the SDK soon, and there will be talented persons writing plugins to Ambient soon.
