Here's a video of a early concept of Longhorn dating back from 2003. Does anyone know if this concept has ever been used?

Only parts of it and in different builds.
There is no such build as in this concept video!

My God, is that concept video ever going to stop haunting me!
Some of the visual whatnot in that video can be seen in the earlier 4xxx build's, and 4039 got close to having a completed Plex theme, but no build of longhorn even comes close to that video.

I think the Milestone longhorns come a bit to it, but it is just a concept. It is fake.

Some people would like that microsoft make this, in steat of vista, but the didn't. So the whole concept is not used anymore.

Hope someone is going to reload/rebuild it so it lookslike this, but until that, it is only a movie.

Well, protoplex has pretty much recreated the UI...

Not really, nothing could recreate much of what was in that video.

I like the video, but I hate the youtube page it's on.
All sort's of people comment all sort's of uninformed crap, and if you try to tell them the truth about what Longhorn really was, or how that video was a concept, and how what it portray's never really existed, then they flame the crap out of you, harrass you, spam you, or respond with somthing like "Vista suck's, dis full owns Vista!!!!"
