It was merely a customised XP that planned to contain elements of XP, Longhorn and Vista.

Here's screenshots of some of the builds - Codename Sylvester Builds

No, never was, and probably never will be. Was released to just a few testers, and is also classed as Warez, being XP SP2 VLK with an Automated Installation.

Awesome GUI.

Looks like you put a fair amount of effort into the look and feel of it, shame you guys had to cancel.
