Microsoft recently released an SDK for the Kinect for Windows development. Does that mean if I go buy a Kinect, I can use it on my PC now? I'm a developer and would like to fidget around with it, but I want to make sure it will work on my PC first because I don't have an XBOX.


Yes it will work on your PC (provided it has a USB port).

There is also an open source "SDK" with reverse engineered drivers for Windows and Linux, if the licence for the official SDK is to prohibitive (there are a lot of licence restrictions on the use of the official SDK, a commercial SDK might be released later on).
