Look at this:


It's a shot of the newest Longhorn alpha.
Seems like the stole xduffys idea of showing the free-disk-space of the
drives in bars.

Ehm, you people miss one thing. The idea of that was to be included in Longhorn long ago. Even before the The Desktop. Trust me, i know for sure.

Come on you people i dont remember which page that was. But there was a list of what was going to be integrated in Longhorn.

BTW, mbouza no offense but please dont post useless messages.

BTW2, hustedt, the screenshot you have is a complete fake. Just look at the build numbers. LOL

Well, it wasn't my idea... I got the idea when i was running BeOS, because BeOS got this feature, and I thought it was very clever... But I have not invented it in any way, and neither did MS...
