How would I go about porting the desktop notifications (with the timer) from Windows Longhorn to XP? And could I also make it so that the application icons do the same animation like they did in earlier longhorn builds?

You probably can't do it by yourself. This type of port would require extensive modifications to system files to work properly. Straight-up transplanting Longhorn files would be problematic as well, because you would need to transplant their dependencies, which eventually would mean installing a very broken Longhorn manually.

I do seem to remember an app that brought the LH-style toasts to Vista (and maybe XP).
