Beta testers? Beta DVD? Fish, you have a time-machine you're not telling us about? :D There's no beta yet. The last build we saw was a pre-alpha, and things have changed drastically since then.

Stay tuned for OSNN's coverage of WinHEC 2005 next week. We're getting a new build to play with. ;)

Far to premature to be asking such a question. Maybe once we get to RC stages we can form a better idea of how the o/s is going to turn out.

Isn't 4074 ancient? (Relatively speaking, of course).
Yeah, it was showcased at last year's WinHEC, and leaked on May 4th. I remember the date because it also happens to be my birthday. :D
So yeah, it's almost a full year old, and there have been major changes since then, as I mentioned earlier.

Thought so, think it was the build that I used, likely shortly after it's leak :)p) waiting to get my hands on the new builds though, shouldn't be long after they're handed out that they're "available" :p

microbeta has torrents for longhorn if anyone wants to try it.

I am happy with XP Pro, if I change o.p.s. it will be to a Linux version.

Longhorn will never be put on my HD.

Interesting that you've already made the decision without having a clue what it's going to end up like.
Sounds familiar. Didn't the same sort of thing happen during the Whistler betas too? :D

do what i did put your media (songs, pictures, videos...) on one disk and try installing the alpha os on another disk that way nothing gets damaged

Longhorn is a Micro$oft product.

Do we really have to try it to know it will be crap?

Years late, major features dropped, probably cost twice as much...

I was quite happy to stay with windows 98se, I bought a computer new from Tiny and it came preinstalled with winxp home.

I have had enough of paying a lot of money for M$ upgrades and software to keep it nealry secure and clean, so I won't be touching Longhorn.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
