Wow, nice find, thanks. Good to see people making software like this still. Did he specifically intend to recreate LH or did it just happen to look the same.

i believe it was the full intention to make it look like LH
upon further research though is the glass popups never actually made it any LH build
thay were only in concept flash demos..but ither way where microsoft left off
the community finished :D

o and BTW you can make your owen skins for it...thay are just bitmap images ;)

I've been using this since the first release. Longhorn-esque if you ask me.

Yeah Andreas meant for it to look like LH, just look at the default skins :)
I know there's also something on dA that makes WinXP toasts look like Vista
