Windows Various sources are posting screenshots of the upcoming beta release of Longhorn, Microsoft's succesor to Windows XP. IE7 shots are also included. Due to the Slashdot-effect, mirrors are already available. Original source | mirror 1 | mirror 2. My take: Too much transparency.

For a Windows OS that's faster, more secure, and overall more efficient.

I want less bloat, so my computer will run faster on Longhorn than it does on XP, not slower.

WTF do I care about transparent windows that serve no functional purpose?

Is that what they've been taking all this time with, to make it look pretty (all the while dropping useful stuff like WinFS)?
