Which Longhorn builds have spinning icons and pictures?

Post by squidward_ »

Hi people, I was just wondering, does anyone know which Longhorn build have a thing in Windows Explorer, where it shows something like the My Music, for example, there would be the music icon, then when you select one of your albums, the music picture would spin round and turn into the albumart for the album you have selected, please? Thankyou.

I think he is talking about this concept:

<object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/b9ifQvQCO7Y&re ... ram><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/b9ifQvQCO7Y&rel=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>

There never was a longhorn build like this

yep, he is talking about that.

i think it would be nice if someone created such things for vista, or maybe microsoft will add these old ideas in windows 7

If only microsoft had kept to their concept idea, then maybe i wouldn't be running linux and i'd be running windows . The concept looks so much better than the finished product.

Yeah, these concepts are great, it's a shame that so much wasn't implemented in Vista...

I've found a lot of concepts end up like that
