A view of Longhorn and its awesome features

October 24th, 2006 by Patrick S

I just saw this promo video of “Longhorn”… WOW… I didn’t know how many cool features that there were going to be that I have not seen yet. Check out that photo gallery and the fact that everything is so shiny and movable (Thier version of Longhorn is even running Halo III).

Not that I am complaining about Vista (most of the features rock) however I do like the look of some of those Longhorn ones 😛

    Is this an ‘old’ promo from a couple of years ago showing things that they ‘hoped’ would be in vista? If so, what date was it? There is a lot in that video that is not in my Vista build.

    Yes well, LONGHORN is the days before the next generation OS was called VISTA… I dont have a date as I found it on soapbox however i am pretty sure some of these features were in very early builds… But yes its an ‘old promo’. 🙂

    Oh well, there is always Windows Vienna (2009). Interesting to note the round start button before the blue pearl appeared in Vista…

    […] Ein Programm das sich perfekt in diesen tollen Longhorn-Desktop integriert hätte … dass jeder zweite Linux-Desktop den Longhorn-Konzeptvideos heute ähnlicher sieht als Windows Vista dürfte sich ja mittlerweile rumgesprochen haben. […]
