Silverlight PathListBox, Path Layout and animation

In Silverlight 4 a new control has been introduced which is the PathListBox which makes things like radial panel easy to do.

Good Starting point will be this nice video by Adam Kinney, posted by John Papa.

Christian Shormann has a 4 part series in his ElectricBeach blog. In these blogs he gives a step by step instructions to build interesting visual effects using the PathListBox. All his examples use the Expression Blend 4 and not much code. Everything is done visually and in XAML!
