Longhorn Evangelist Debunks Professed ‘Aero’ Shots

Longhorn Evangelist Debunks Professed ‘Aero’ Shots [OSNews]

Robert Scoble, technology evangelist for Longhorn at Microsoft, has called into question several purported screenshots of the next-generation Longhorn interface code-named “Aero.” “These look like early demonstration screens, and not how Longhorn will eventually look,” Scoble wrote in his Web log. “The
real “Aero” is one of Longhorn’s biggest secrets — I’ve seen it, but
can’t load it on my own machine and am locked out of the server where
it’s kept,
” says Microsoft’s Scoble. “I am not even sure they’ll show it off at the PDC.
Indeed, the screenshots are using icons from all over the place
(including a BeOS icon), which proves that these are just early
concepts/mockups and not the real/finished thing.
