Here are 4 easy steps that can make your pc look and function like the long awaited Windows Longhorn.

Step 1.) WindowBlinds.net with Longhorn theme and the New Bliss Wallpaper- With downloading Longhorn Slate 4051 it will transform the look of your desktop to look exactly like Longhorn. (except the 3D interface) This with the bliss you should be able to fool your friends!
(www.windowblinds.net)

Step 2.) Windows Media Player 10 with Compact Skin- The beta version of Windows Media Player 10 (the final will be availible at the end of the year) With the compact skin matches the Longhorn Slate skin in step one.

Step 3.) dtSearch- Longhorn's umpcoming Windows File System will allow contextual searches as well as the ability to scan your entire system in seconds.

If your friends think you have Longhorn because it looks like it - they're fools Get the Alpha and give it a good test. That way you're cool and are helping Microsoft.

The side bar was taken off the newest Alpha 5048 I believe, also just because thats what it looks like in Alpha doesnt mean thats what its going to look like in beta 1 or damn well not in beta 2. Also why is everyone so concerned about the GUI of LH? How about the totally redesigned file system? How about the internal modifications?
