Extreme Tech has posted a few short videos showing some of the features of Windows “Longhorn” 3D user interface. The first is a simple conceptual idea of what can be done with the Desktop Composition Engine, the next is an example of using video textures, and finally there’s [ExtremeTech’s] “favorite” demo.

Note: the QuickTime videos over on ExtremeTech, for some unknown reason, do not seem to be progressive (fast start) downloads, so you’ll have to wait for them to download completely before the movies will play.

See them here, then come back to tell us what you think. Thanks.
