Default Re: What happened to blackcomb

but the whole point of this post was because i want to know What happened to Blackcomb, it was supposed to be released before XP and after 2000, then it was heavily postponed, so did they release any BETA version of it, but look at this

AND LOOK AT THIS

http://www.thevista.ru/page.php?al=a...94edcf5b4ea932

isnt that cool, its what im looking for!, there is a theme for it in WindowsBlinds.
Is there a BETA version or ALPHA version available for download?

Hmm, it says Blackholm (changed to Vienna) is scheduled for release between 2009 and 2012. I'd say no earlier than 2015. But thats just microsoft for you.

What are you on about, using OLD?? XP Icons? this was made BEFORE!!!!!!! XP!!!!!!!!
This was supposed to be released in 2000, before 2001, BEFORE XP, there is a real version of it coz i found it on the web (a video of it) and it was real, microsoft still have it in there DB.
this says fakes coz they are released after Windows XP, if you read wikipedia, it was SUPPOSED to be released before windows, therefore those icons were blackcomb's first, not XP, and if you actually listened to what i has to say first, i want to know what happened to blackcomb (the 2000 version), not Vienna (i know they now are the same, but why was it postponed and where are some Beta's)
Heres a Beta CD Image

And this stuff

P.S, to the person who said "wtf there are icons during the installation" it stopped installing, it says you have successfully installed Blackcomb!
