· Longhorn

Longhorn Windows XP Successor

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.
