I would like to share with you all something that I discovered today: The animated aurora effect in Windows Longhorn.

More information can be found at http://stoyanov.in/p...desktop-aurora/

I've also included a screenshot (which may seem trivial at first, but it's nice to know beforehand what you're about to click on)...

Whoa, if you open that .xaml file in Internet Explorer (I'm on IE10), it gets rendered and you can see it in motion. Cool find!

You do realise that this is older than time itself? Still nice to remember what we were all playing with 10 years ago.

Yeah, but I'm sure there are some members here who will enjoy it very much. There are those who seem to have quite an emotional attachment to Longhorn.
