There were lots of cool features which were being tested in Longhorn (now known as Vista). Check out that photo gallery, everything is so shiny and movable (This version of Longhorn is even running Halo 2).

Nobody knows what happened to these features :(

The Longhorn build was okay, but it just wasn't my taste yet.

My friend's dad, who works for MS (GUI Designer), said the cool graphics were cut out because not everybody could afford a computer with 512 MB graphics.

ALso he did say lots of cool stuff were cut from the betas and RCs, and that MS is planning on delivering a "surprise" when it comes out. Hopefully the surprise isn't buggy. :P

BTW I also like this look a LOT better, but only because I've gotten sick of seeing tons and tons of Vista skins...

;)
ironic
i alway's said that vista is just nothing more then a nice skin and a litle more stable with a sidebar big deal.
and people alway's mad blablabla vista is not what u say it is.
BUT when u see this video u see that the vista we have now is not realy special.
its not even new anymore every one has seen it every one has used it.and all they have done is cut out cool Things like u have seen in the video. comon be honest for one damn time and tell me what does vista have thats sooooooooooo much better thats worth our 6 years of waiting ? and dont say DMW and AERO.
the things i can only think off is the securety its pretty good in vista i have to say but the UAC is F*cking anoying.
and vista is a litle faster to but what do u expect of the system reqeurements its asking.

but after seeing this video with lots of cool Things vista does not have.
is the vista we have now worth all the 6 years they have spend on it.

Video looks good, GUI looks good, but reminds me a bit like Longhorn was running on Linux or sth.

WOW that was awesome i would have to agree with thoosje to,

Also if you look at the basic family, businessman, whatever, they dont really care about all the amazing features that comes with Vista or that could of come with Longhorn all they want it to do is work, they wanna be able to sit down get on their myspace, do homework, do business work, maybe play a game, and then they turn it off never really seeing all thats going on.

thanx

P.S. I would much rather have longhorn than vista I would save up all the money i could for upgrades it would be worth it.
