Post New Windows OS Coming Soon

The next major desktop Windows release, code-named Longhorn, is due in 2005 and will include Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing (Palladium) architectural changes, as well as a new 3D video-driven user interface and a SQL Server-based file system called Windows Future Storage (WinFS). The next Windows Server release, code-named Blackcomb, will likely ship a few years after Longhorn.

I used it a couple of weeks back, the alpha build, and was pretty horrible, Hope it gets a little more stable.

The Side bar is something thats new, and kinda weird.

Looks like its trying to use multiple desktops (hmmm... just like linux)

lol@Longhorn... if you want a stable, nice looking, customizable OS, just install Litestep on top of Windows XP Pro

Always had doubts about their Palladium 'technology' - as far as I've heard, Longhorn will be packin' more spyware than before =\

I will continue to stick to using XP / 2000 Pro for now.

I find all the MS bashin so hilarious. Everyone says this for a while because its what everyone else has told them, but then they start using the OS, and when the next one comes out its: "Im just gonna stick to -insert last new OS here-"

I dont judge until I've used a final release of a new OS. Its foolish.

Talkin about litestep, it screwd my computer over. All my icons were changed to some ugly looking pixalated icons (the main ones) and to a extent I couldnt run it as normal windows. I formatted and reinstalled xp just because of litestep. (its cool but lots of problems when recovering from it)
