    Longhorn Beta 1 Screenshots

    A quick mention for some Longhorn screens that have surfaced.

    Check them out - hosted on mirrordot as the site is being Slashdotted at the moment.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Longhorn really isn't about the interface you can see in static screenshots. Every time I see Longhorn screens discussed on an internet forum, it's always "but it looks like XP with a skin".

    To say so is missing the point. Please discuss how crap it looks (it really does ), but please don't just say it's just XP with a skin.
    MOLLY AND POPPY!

    Me too. You can't tell what it's like unless things are moving. I think it looks ok though.

    But considering how many "ground-breaking" new features were dropped, isn't it pretty much going to be "XP with a skin", and a new version of IE and DX ?

    I would like to see the four pillars in action. With some stats to back them up.

    If these people do have the longhorn beta installed I want to see;

    1. A boot up video
    2. Some hard stats, show us task manager or the system details.


    Also why are those photos taken from a laptop?

    What with all the stuff that has been taken out, what new stuff is there going to be in Longhorn over Windows XP (besides the interface that I hope you can turn off)?

    WTF are we all meant to say then? All you can see pictures of is a new theme for XP...
    I can't really see anything that new or great can you?
    What are we meant to be discussing? That article doesnt have anything in it apart from some pictures.
    Ohh.....look at the shiny goodness :|
