    I watched the movie. Neat concept, terrible implementation. A 3D room???!!! :confused:

    I agree that taking an existing 2D GUI and adding depth and dimension to it would be cool (like putting on 3D glasses), but a 3D room is just... stupid and lame.

    Ummm...this has been around for a while. It has nothing to do with any upcoming OS from MS. Theres a reason why its under research and not press announcements or something.

    If that is XP I will be surprised. It looks horrible. I think that it is a very poor approach as well. They need a better way to do this. The room is a joke.

    Windows XP's GUI looks a lot like Aqua. :mad: See my post in this forum.

    I can't watch videos at work, so I have no idea what you are talking about. Is it anything like that voyager thing that comes with Compaq? I can't remember which computer has that thingy with the rooms.

    The only good part of the movie is when Windoze starts shaking and then explodes.
