Longhorn is the next 64-bit OS from Microsoft. however, it's the codename and it probably be the name of the actual OS when it's released.

Its a breech of civil liberties...an OS that will stop you doing anything that M$ and its buddies sees unfit for you (and their wallets).

The OS uses TC (trusted computing) which is like a super DRM, so no more running *back ups* of apps.. no more downloading of *unfit* material (unliscenced mp3s/avi's/etc.......dont even think about *adult material*)...... no more everything....be warned. Its phones home and checks EVERYTHING is legit.....and you cant turn it off.

From a business point of view it will be fantastic.......from an individuals point of view it is EVIL......(or should that be SAINTLY?)....











........allegedly.

that is sick even for microsoft...

"we can expect TC to be used to suppress everything from pornography to writings that criticise political leaders. "

whos sick idea was this that is impeding on our rights!

if M$ goes through with this I am going to switch to Linux full time

Maybe this is the big break alternative OSs were waiting for...

It's going to be one hell of a ride importing great software and games to Open Source OS's.
