    Me want... although some might say a 256-core computer is a little overkill.

    More interesting about this screenshot is that Win2k8 R2 is apparently going to get the new taskbar.  Snazzy.

    I wonder if this is virtualized, just to test it Smiley A virtual machine with faked 256 CPUs.

    That is what we said about 2 cores not too long ago Smiley  I think 256 is the OS max for w2k08 for now AFAICT.

    So, I guess that this is what the new taskbar will look like in Classic mode. Smiley

    If it is classic mode, it needs more love. Those buttons look like they've got hardcoded 2px borders rather than anything more aesthetic like the quicklaunch's 1px-on-hover borders.

    Yes but how would you know which app is "aktiv" if they only get border on hover? hm... although it's hard to discuss this I guess until we start testing it.

    Classic they should probably turn blue or something to follow the generic "blue = active" classic windows thing.

    Did you say "classic" and "aestethic" in the same sentence?

    Does not compute Smiley
