there's a freeware(?) app that does that-- I think it's called 3D desktop or something.
Not needing stylesxp or a hacked uxtheme.dll, for unsigned .msstyles, would be nice. In general: more, better, faster, and cheap.

What I would like to see in Longhorn is:
- Removal of many of the useless services that run at boot on XP. (UPnP as an example)
- Removal of some backwards compatibility
- Better native theme support and lighter themes
In general, while some of the new features look useful, I don't want MS to forget the speed/security/stability advantages of designing the OS for a small footprint.

I hope it is as stable or better than XP. I hope that the rumor that it might not include a swap/virtual memory file is true. RAM is so cheap and hard drives are so big I dont see the real need for it anymore.

And as said before ... no MS control skin crap! ... Let the people make their own skins damnit! ... A skin SDK would be a nice adition
And one last thing ... .. A nerd- / geek- / power user mode where things aren't "uSeR fRiEnDlY!" would be very nice! ... Im really tired of wizards trying to make my life "easier" ...
