The header image for Microsoft's The Panel.

The Panel was a Microsoft website dedicated to the creation and distribution of showcase applications based on the Windows Presentation Foundation for the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system.[1] The release of UniveRSS, a 3D RSS feed reader created by the website, was reported by various technology websites.[2][3] The Panel also released several Gadgets for Microsoft's now defunct Windows Live service and for the Windows Sidebar in Windows Vista.[1]

A list of third-party WPF-based applications was maintained by the website, including: the New York Times Reader, NoteScraps, Yahoo! Messenger for Windows Vista, and Windows Vista Magazine. The website also listed The North Face In-Store Explorer shown at PDC 2005—to be experienced in The North Face stores—and the Microsoft Calendar Printing Assistant for Outlook 2007.[4]
