    Greetings,

    I would like to share my concept video, Longhorn Diamond Effects video Smiley You can find the video over at my website: www.xpsource.com

    "The video demonstrates the sidebar (on the right), tilting a few degrees to the right. The main window in the video turns 360 degrees."

    And while you're at it, tell me what you think of my blog Smiley

    Well, I wonder who's "they're". Smiley Anyway, no not really. Check out a screenshot Windows Longhorn Diamond effects over at my blog. Smiley

    I mean the "Diamond Video" effects are sexy.. and it seems Microsoft is copying PLG

    As for your site... seems fairly "blog"-standard to me (sorry, poor pun there), looks like you've taken the default Wordpress template and changed a few things... hardly worth much praise, imho.

    Simple & clean are good. That's the first that I've seen of the effects. Thanks for putting it up. BTW, W3boo, where's your blog? Can't wait for Beer28 to join in the LG similarity.

    Not sure that's a screenshot of the effects. I'm pretty sure it's just a concept and an old one at that since it still has the Sidebar.

    I don't see how this effect could improve the useability of Longhorn. This is just a copy of the Looking Glass effects but doesn't do anything at all.

    Well, that's a good statement! Maybe Microsoft are trying to make Longhorn more attractive Wink

    Note this is my concept Smiley

    Have you seen the concept videos of Carter Maslan? He shows some applications that make a good use of the new features.

    I've seen all those video's from way back in 2004, some were from 2003 if I'm not mistaken. I'd like to see some new concept video's using a live version of Longhorn. I believe that those were mock-up concept video's using graphics software if I remember correctly.
