Longhorn Developer Center: The Blinking Lights Division (Avalon Unleashed)

Longhorn Developer Center: The Blinking Lights Division (Avalon Unleashed) "When we began the "Avalon" project (code name for the presentation platform for the next version of Microsoft® Windows®, code-named "Longhorn"), there was the clear desire to modernize the entire graphics stack inside of Windows. We have this amazingly powerful video card that is sitting idle the entire time you are running Windows (unless you happen to be playing Quake in windowed mode) and even with the idleness of the video card, we still manage to blue screen the machine in the much maligned video drivers."
