Anyone remember HP NewWave

Thanks for the reminder of just how old the fundamental UI concepts embedded in Win10 are (ie. they go right back to MS-DOS) and how MS (and others) have largely ignored different approaches, such as that explored by NewWave and the cancelled Longhorn development project (not the same as the version of Windows carrying the development name 'Longhorn' that was released as Vista).
