Description

Longhorn is at least two years away from shipping, so why would Microsoft release a preview of Longhorn so early?

What advice would he have for developers who want to try out the previews released at WinHec or the PDC?

      This Avalon xml code looks very similar to a programm from me i use it to build GUI's for maschines.
      Here a xml snippet for a Button:
       <PICTUREBUTTON>
        <SeitenID>Auto</SeitenID>
        <UnterSeiteID/>
        <BackgroundImage>CFTerminal.Bilder.DeckelZuGedreht.gif</BackgroundImage>
        <XLocation>100</XLocation>
        <YLocation>380</YLocation>
        <XSize>75</XSize>
        <YSize>34</YSize>
        <WordPos>1</WordPos>
        <BitMask>512</BitMask>
        <ToggelButton>false</ToggelButton>
        <LEDAnzeigen>false</LEDAnzeigen>
        <LEDBytePos>0</LEDBytePos>
        <LEDBitMask>0</LEDBitMask>
        <DisableByte>1</DisableByte>
        <DisableBitMask>0</DisableBitMask>
       </PICTUREBUTTON>
