I'm also open to suggestions, if you've seen something promising in a Longhorn build, I'd be more than happy to investigate. This also doesn't constitute one of those annoying "Longhorn projects", just good old-fashioned feature-hunting.

Favourite OS Windows 7. I'm so boring
wonder if it was external app or is leftover still built in and hidden inside
The latter would be unlikely because from what I know LH was completely scrapped and little to no code was reused for the 5xxx builds. If you're referring to what I think, that's an external app that I believe you can find somewhere.
Bump Time! I got bored a bit earlier, so I went hunting around in 3706. Never realised how much of a gold mine this build is. I'm planning on documenting some of the stuff in more detail on the blog later, but in the mean time, I found this and just had to share:
It's a non-functional UI prototype, possibly the beginnings of UAC, but since nothing works, and MS have been a bit "vague" with the wording, it's difficult to tell.

The Privacy Settings wizard might of been a part of a early Security Center concept. I think MS was going to allow you to manage all security options of Windows. An early program consent window appears to be what this may have been.
