Default Windows Longhorn?

I saw at a board that some people were talking about it. What is it? Is it another name for Windows XP?

Its also supposed to be completely integrated with .NET and that means... Goodbye Privacy!

(and goodbye piracy.)

I have seen this and played with it alittle, and of course, right now it sucks, but it's in Alpha form.

But the plans are big. We'll just have to wait and see if they make it to reality.

It's the next version of XP or the Windows client to follow XP. Slated to come out in 2005 it is still in the Alpha testing stage. But copies are available.
