MSDN Designer Posts Fun Longhorn Stuff

Peter Stern, one of MSDN's most excellent user experience and graphic designers, has started up a web site, with a special section just for fun Longhorn-related stuff, including a complete deck of card faces in XAML and his drawings of yours truly from the Longhorn Developer Center in XAML format.

I've been corrupting Peter's thinking toward Longhorn for a few months now and I've fabulously happy to have him as the other half of that magical ying/yang designer/developer relationship that Avalon fosters.

One step at a time. You designers are hard to get on board; I don't want to scare him away! : )

Peter Stern's site has the most interesting content of any personal site I have seen in quite a while (barring Congrats on getting yourself a really cool deck for solitaire. If you could get your version of solitaire to ship with Longhorn you will extend your legendary status for years to come!

I doubt my version will ship with LH, but I like your thinking. : )

Seems unfortunate that your Solitaire won't make it in. It has some complexities in it that aren't apparent on the surface (i.e. what exactly is the scoring algorithm?), but I'm getting the sinking feeling that we're still gonna have old Notepad, old Solitaire, old Minesweeper, etc.
Any chance of at least donating the UI code to whomever owns sol.exe so that the backend code stays, but it uses Avalon? But then, I'd probably be dissatisfied that sol.exe is all new and shiny, while Minesweeper is still old and ugly.
