Has anyone think that Longhorn was better than the final Vista versions? I always loved the Longhorn sounds more than Vista, and they weren't a pain in the butt to use compared with it.

Melcher's website is great for info/hacks for pre-reset Longhorn builds. Hopefully it'll be updated to be just as useful for post-reset builds in the near future! :D

Guys, Longhorn builds used XP sounds. All Vista beta builds also used XP sounds until around RC2.
