Microsoft previews "Avalon" graphics engine. Microsoft on Friday offered a public preview of Avalon, its all-new graphics and presentation engine for up-coming Windows versions.
Originally a key part of Longhorn, the next version of Windows, the company decided last year to also make it available as an add-on to Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. The preview version works on both Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. But, Microsoft warns developers that the code in the current version is pretty rough.
The only easy day was yesterday.
