I've been hearing on the new microsoft OS. As a project they called LongHorn, form this i heard they are making a new OS that will completely alter the way they have been making OS's by making it faster more reliable and even simplier to use. So in other words Windows might have a decent OS to use in the future

Unless I'm badly mistaken, I believe "Longhorn" was the code name they used for XP while it was under development. The latest thing from Microsoft is called Vista which is scheduled for release later this year.

You are badly mistaken, the development codename for Vista (means "chicken" in my native language) was Longhorn.
bwhahahaha!

Besides I already use and have been using such an OS for 2 years now. It's called Linux.

Stephan told conference attendees that Longhorn will:

# launch applications 15 percent faster than Windows XP does
# boot PCs 50 percent faster than they boot currently and will allow PCs to resume from standby in two seconds
# allow users to patch systems with 50 percent fewer reboots required
# reduce the number of system images required by 50 percent
# enable companies to migrate users 75 percent faster than they can with existing versions of Windows.

Actually it is Windows that is irrelevant to me, even if it's not to you.

Thanks. That's what happens when someone is going strictly from memory - thus my disclaimer.

Well regardless if it is irrelevant to you or not. It is irrelavent to this thread. Well I suppose it's not anymore, seeing as were talking about it now.
