My favourite of that one was the progress bar concepts they created. Also interesting to see that in the image below has no (visible) start button. Ah, the crazy old designers at Microsoft!

Oh hey, nice find! I actually remember seeing one of these way back on istartedsomething. (Can't find the link for it, though...)

I did find these cool PC concepts for Longhorn while looking for it.
