According to Paul Thurrott and our very own NetRyder we our hearing that June 30th will be the release date of LH beta 1. ? My guess is that it will be more like a pre-beta (post alpha 5048 ) semi workable OS minus most of the bells and whistles, and an actual beta 1 workable version won't be out until July-Aug. The delays are typical and I can't see any integration of the TCP/IP Chimney component as its still being held up in the courts. And if not Chimney then what. Alacritech is saying MS stole their architecture for networking and can't display LH to the public at all. Isn't this an essential part of the OS for networking, and if an actual beta 1 was coming out in three weeks wouldn't they be showing up at beta.microsoft.com for testing. Just wondering what others think.
