While editing Ian Griffiths new WinFX article for ONDotnet.com, he showed me how wrong I am.  I’ve been complaining about the hit on battery life that Longhorn will have since it will use the GPU (Video Card).  Of course, Ian correctly mentioned that the high power/heat 3D computation is not needed for Longhorn, but the 2D rendering is.  This eleviates all of my concerns about power and Longhorn.  I am happy to be wrong…
