Microsoft has released v0.2 of their WPF Application Quality Guide, which contains some great new items in the application testing section. They go over some interesting ways you can test a GUI application, including media sections of an application. I must say I hadn't thought about taking a screenshot of the desired result and then using an image differencing tool on the user's screenshot as a method of acceptance testing. That section definitely got me thinking on how to streamline our own GUI testing practices (read: nonexistent). I have cleaned up versions of their sample code, and if you'd like it just shoot me an email.
