i dunno if i will ever use longhorn unless its forced upon me for some reason that i cant use another os, which im sure it will b when programs will only run in the 64 bit winblows platform. im sure ur wondering why would i say this well, someone mentioned more secure, haha talk about no security no privacy etc. when they implement this trusted computing **** into it makes it so all the authors of programs, microsoft, riaa etc all have access to ur computer, can delete things remotely and whatever else they please, just read they explain it better than me.
this is rediculous imo just when i thought it couldnt get worse in about 2 yrs when longhorn comes out it will be worse much worse
as for getting the beta, everything u do on it gets sent back to microsucks for analysis, definitely would shut off my modem while playing with it if u get it unless ur one of these ppl that dont care about privacy
i like my computer to obey what i tell it to do not what someone else thinks it should b doing
if i want to run warez, dloaded mp3s, porn, or anything else i might feel the urge to do i should b able to do so whenever i please. this is like putting a device in ur car that calls the cops on u when u start speeding and better yet gives the cops the ability to control and slow ur car down to a speed that they want. like anyone would ever buy that car outfitted with that but since microsucks knos ppl are dependent upon windows and to stay to date with technology ppl will b forced to buy into and squander their privacy away just to do everyday tasks such as reading email. linux and opensource is about to take a huge step forward
