I'm a Texan guy, and I always wished I could have went to UT. I like the sound of "Long Horn." I wish theyd keep that name.

Longhorn is just Microshafts attempt to get to the same level that Linux has always been on with the performance of an OS. I personally can't see myself buying Longhorn. I'm still getting used to XP because I used to run Linux. I've seen the Beta/Alpha version and it's not all that impressive imo.

The beta/alpha release of Longhorn is a forgotten project. Since then, the whole thing's been torn apart and practically started over again. No one should base their opinions of the next version of windows on what the longhorn beta release shows.

So MS is rebuilding their security and file structure from the ground up. This is what everyone's wanted. This is what everyone's always complained about. They're finally addressing the issue head on, and all anyone can do is continue to bytch and complain. Some people are never satisfied.

That would be because you dont know the in's and out's and little details of the OS. Its going to be pretty amazing I believe, something like OSX Tiger.

Does it matter? I would think any reconstruction would be worth celebrating.

Anyway, yeah, they've already stated that they're rebuilding the security from the ground up, and the new file system is being bashed a bunch but should be out to (to replace NTFS).

i have a copy of longhorn beta from the developers and dude it sucks ***. do not install it on something you want to last. i screw around with it on a 10gig hd and every couple of days it crashes. basically it acts like any other microsoft os.
