longhorn development were amaziing times! i wodner why the team was fired and replaced? that was the best team really.. had MS given them an extra year or two would have been better than bring in Jim allchin and have vista flop and then windows 8 flop too. but yea hindsight is always 20/20.
"It's not going to work," Mr. Allchin says he told the Microsoft chairman. The new version, code-named Longhorn, was so complex its writers would never be able to make it run properly.
The news got even worse: Longhorn was irredeemable because Microsoft engineers were building it just as they had always built software. Throughout its history, Microsoft had let thousands of programmers each produce their own piece of computer code, then stitched it together into one sprawling program. Now, Mr. Allchin argued, the jig was up. Microsoft needed to start over.

Does anyone know of any "Plex" themes for Windows 7?
I found this theme on Deviantart, but It is for Vista. Will Vista themes work on Windows 7?

No, Vista themes, will only work with Vista. But, searching DeviantArt produced a plethora of Windows 7 compatible themes. Here you go: http://browse.devian...yle/?q=Longhorn

Yea, the Office XP UI style was based on Watercolor, because Luna was kept secret by the Windows team and Office XP was actually released before Windows XP. It took until Office 2003 for this to be finally fixed.
Who remembers "Watercolor"?
