I'm wanting to make some nice looking applications, but I don't know where to start looking for. I know how to program "standard" C, C++ and C# applications and was wondering how I can design an application looking like the Zune player of microsoft. This application doesn't have the typical "window" style.

What technologies are used there? I guess it must be something like silverlight? Can you give me some help to have a starting point for my studies? I really have no idea of what technology we're talking about here.

PS: I don't know if this is the correct forum. If not I'm really sorry!
