  Visualize real-world Longhorn! 

Want to be blown away by new technology coming in Longhorn? Want to see a real-world application using Avalon & Indigo? Sure we've seen all the demos and PDC slides showing off these new technologies, but one of the most difficult things (for now) is to visualize how you might put these technologies to use in a real-world application.

Carter Maslan of Microsoft has put together a concept application for the real estate industry to demonstrate some real-world uses of the new technologies we'll be seeing in Windows Longhorn. You can see the demo video here:

Demo 640x480
Demo 320x240

Really cool stuff. Longhorn will bring a whole new paradigm shift in how we think about applications. Not sure if I am excited or nervous ;-)

    *Sigh* While I know it's going to sound like I'm MS bashing (But I like em so there!) I really am getting sick of all the Longhord/Whidbey/Yukon talk. MSDN mag has been completely taken over by it.....

    I've got an idea instead of telling me all the cool things that will be available to me "sometime in the future" why not tell me how I can utilitize all the great stuff MS can offer me NOW, then when I think "Hey, This is great stuff whats next".... Grrrrr

    Hey Nobody Special, I do know what you mean. I think that all the big publications out there tend to get caught up in covering the new stuff - and start to neglect the current stuff we have to work with at times.

    Part of the cause of the Longhorn "blitz" is that MS has really starting making things public way farther in advance compared to what they usually do. But it has taken over as the dominant topic in many publications & sites. For me, the bigger problem is seeing all this cool stuff that is coming and not being able to use it in production for so long. It is torture.
