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.

Hype=$$

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.

my friend has a beta version of Longhorn. If i ever have a spare computer lying around I might install it...but I do not want to install it on my primary computer.

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.

Couldn't agree more.
