    · When Is Longhorn gonna Come out
    Late 2003. This date might change though

    · What do you know about this OS
    We dont know much at all. Only that it is gonna be the next Windows and its coming out late 2003.

    · Longhorn
    Windows XP successor: Windows.NET 1.0

    Longhorn Windows XP Successor
    Windows as a Service Win.NET x.x

    Blackcomb Windows XP / Longhorn Successor
    Windows as a Service Win.NET x.x

    · Will Blackcomb use .net's Software as a Service?
    Not much is known about blackcomb, but it is possible that Microsoft will charge monthly, for access to its Software as a Service OS. Blackcomb may be at stores like AOL CDs, for people to take home for free. Once installed, users can sign up for pay services and optional components. One example is Sharing Your Calender. For an extra $0.70/Month, you will be able to share your calender and tasks to your workgroup... These are some assumptions of what blackcomb ( Possibly Called Windows.NET ) will have, though they are not accepted by Microsoft.
