I'll be downloading it just for the heck of it, i wanna see what is it about this engine that people talk so much about.

For those living under the shadow for the past few months Avalon is:

Avalon consists of a display engine and a managed code framework. For the first time, Avalon will unify how Windows creates displays and manipulates documents, media and the user interface.

Watched a few videos on this trying to learn about the next windows. It seems to me that they are advertizing that its done in 3D with vectors or something.

What does it do exactly? Have you installed it yet?

Hrmm, looks like I will be trying these on my systems at work, it looks interesting and whether or not it is beneficial is another question. I will also let you know what I found out after I d/l, it will be about an hour from now.

UPDATE: Well installed it and I see no difference, then I look at all the release notes and other news before that. This is mainly for developers who want to use the Avalon technology in current XP systems. IOW it is pointless for the average joe user. Just my heads up.

Hmm, not so sure what this is, but from what I've read it sounds like an excuse for Windows XP to take up even more RAM. :p
