  • windows longhorn

    Any other developers here planning on building a frontend for longhorn? I would like to build one on longhorn but I think I will wait till Beta 1 comes out because it runs like a dog on my machine right now. I cant wait to work with XAML and avalon though, it looks so pretty

    the only problem I can see is that longhorn is still going to be a resource hog when its released from what I have seen in some newsgroups. ESPECIALLY the visuals which sucks for some people like me that use the onboard graphics card on my MII

    Don't you think it's a little early for that?

      Like XP, most of Longhorn's visuals can be turned off.

        I'm writing my front end in .net, which will be fully supported by longhorn. Win32 API will no longer be the central part of the OS, as .net framkework will be the central part.

          I know they can be turned off, but if you plan on using avalon in your application to make it look more 'appealing' then it will still eat resources. I guess until its actually released its hard to tell how much it will take to make it run.

            Realistically, Longhorn is not the operating system of choice when designing front end software for CarPc's. If your going to look that far ahead (2006) then you might as well design front end software for windows XP embedded or Windows CE 5.0 For automotive. Because these are the OS's for future CarPc's.
