Longhorn Beta 1 Milestone 9 (Beta 1 M9) and platform code complete*
March 16, 2005
Note: The "platform code complete" designation does not mean that the Longhorn feature set will in any way be finalized by this point in time. Instead, this term refers to an internal "quality gate" that Longhorn builds must pass in order for the project to be moved into the main build labs for wider distribution.

Thanks. What are the system requirements? I mean minimum requirements, not recommended.

I probably won't be getting Longhorn for this computer. I do plan on building completely new in the Summer of 2006, so that will be my first Longhorn PC.
