Anyone read that article about the new Windows Longhorn OS in Maximum PC? Looks pretty cool, and they show you how to make your pc look just like. With the windowsblinds skin, sidebar download and the WinFS file search download. It works like google to search your hard drive.

 

has everything but the 3d interface

 

Well I couldnt help myself and had to try it out <_<

 

what do you think?

thas pretty cool, that side bar looks rght handy. Seems a bit bulky tho. THe google type HD search sounds pretty cool i would say. But, how is it different from the existing search?

the side bar goes away a the click of a button, its just a helper when you need it.

 

According to the article they explain the new file system is set up like an index database, like the web is. So you can type in a letter or phrase and in seconds it will find your file. you can download it at dts

 

and the smartbar at smartbar

 

and the longhorn skin is on windowsblinds which you can get from cnet, but you have to pay for the full version to get the skin. :( $19.95.

I loath the release of longhorn. Its gonna be an over bloated, over drm'ed piece of crap. btw longhorn will not include the Winfs file system. So, no indexing of the hard drive yet. Really,all longhorn is gonna be is an upgraded version of xp with a lot more drm and restrictions on what they will let you do.

 

I am not looking forward to it.

 

Heres some announcements made about it.

 

On Friday Microsoft made three announcements:

 

1.) Microsoft is reaffirming our commitment for broad availability of the Windows

Thats true but remember the longhorn will have 64bit capabilites like windows server 2003 enterprise edition has now! although if you have an msdn subscribtion you can download the windows 64bit edition final release :D* i have it but not enough drivers* but i agree with you on the upgrade point of view...

I wish MS would make up thier minds :( first that idiotic bar was going to bite the dust and a dock similar to osX was going to take it's place... now the dock is gone and the bar is back.

 

this is one reason I gave up on the betas of it a few months ago. everytime I'd get an update it was a very different look and feel to the os.

well.. personally i like the idea of a dock like the os x.. it helps keep your desktop free from clutter and mess.. it also is just a nice feature of the mac os x.. i have aqua dock and use that
