Are these screen shots taken directly from your system??

The new OS looks cool though...

Oh, what is this? Is Windows beginning to look a bit more like Linux? Hmm.. how odd...

I like that multiple desktop feature. It's about time they do something like that.

Judging by the pics and my knowledge of Windows [2005]...it is still in heavy beta...besides Longhorn is like Whistler, just an internal code name till they know when it will be released...

Draco. The build above is an alpha, build 3683, and is typically very buggy. Interesting side-bar feature tho, complete with desktop clock and short-cut integration.

Interesting too the 'install additional components' prompt - raises the possiblity of a 'lite' or custom install - something i've been hearing MS were thinking about for a while now.
