    I will get it when I get around to it. So long as windows stays 32 bit I don't care which version I'm on. I need to test them all for anything I write anyway.

    It'll be out in 3 years. That's quite a while in the computer world.

    I suppose if I have enough money. You know this crap is going to be loaded with so much DRM there won't be a pirated version for about a year afterwards... (not that I would do such things!)

    It's pretty disheartening that Longhorn is moving so slowly. It all sounds great now, but by 2006 will you still be so excited?

    I don't even know what will happen tomorrow....and 2006 is a WAYS off still. Many things might still change...I'm not sure why they tease us with it.

    Gotta hand it to MS, one of the best companies as far as marketing strategy goes.

    Microsoft has billions of dollars... tons and tons of resources available, a huge workforce, and a massive foothold on the PC market.

    Why don't they take some of those extra resources and start building a new Windows OS from scratch. Win64 from the ground-up.

    Stop sculpting a pile of sh** and telling us it's clay.

    They wrote windows NT from ground up, with some of the original Unix programmers. It didn't take them long to $$$$ that codebase up though.

    You can write to MS and they'll send you a disc with the beta on it.

    It doesn't have the Aero (DX-enhanced) GUI or the new WinFS in it, so it's pretty worthless.
