Well, what’s happened recently with Longhorn? Well apart from 4074 and 4083, hardly any leaks.

From what I’ve heard, there isn’t much of the Aero, Avalon and the nice UIs which we all associate Longhorn with. Instead, Luna. What good is there then? A stable codebase and from what I was told, the new installation for Longhorn is very fast.
