Longhorn is still beta, I wouldnt use it as my primary OS. I prefer 2000 (or mandrake) but xp is pretty much the standard for home users

Imagine the bugs in the first 64bit run OS from Microsoft, let them release it after they've made it actuallly usable without having to worry about instibility and security.

I' ve got a batch file that made longhorn more reliable. it disable winfs among other things.(microsoft is taking it off anyway) which was leaking way to much memory anyway.

when you install it make you leave it alone for 2 hours after you initial logon. it will make it more stable afterwards.
