O.P. Windows Codename Longhorn - Really revolutionary?

Originally posted by Longhorn Development Center

The next version of Windows, code-named "Longhorn," will be a significant improvement for customers. It is designed to be a foundation upon which the industry can launch a new wave of innovation. Microsoft's goal is to enable customers to better realize the full benefits of the technology, while enabling businesses to use the technology more effectively, with far fewer barriers. Longhorn represents the most significant step forward in the Windows platform since the move from 16-bit to 32-bit computing in 1995.

Understanding Longhorn



Do you think Longhorn will be such a leap forward, or will it be WIndows XP Seccond edition like a certain Elite member says :rolleyes: ;)?
Note: It also looks like Longhorn will be mainly for 64-bit processors :o

(Note: After watching a video or two it seems there is a lot more integration and cooperation of various features in Longhorn).

for me it'll be XP with even more graphical shit and some leet-ass new programming api's.

for the rest, it's the same update as 2k -> XP, except that now it's XP -> longhorn.

Well I don't know - a lot of things are different :S There's a new file system, new layout, lew log-in system and many many new features. I think it will be a bit of a bigger jump than 2k-xp (and hopefully with less holes this time :refuck:)

I am seriously getting sick and tired of stupid comments like this. According to the forum rules this is spam. Read them before you get banned. (http://shoutbox.menthix.net/rules.html)

The posts are classified as spam because they contribute nothing useful to the thread. Just your useless comments regarding a great company.

Matty, Demandred was merely expresssing his opinon, not EVERYONE likes Microsoft, i don't know of one company where absolutely everyone is satisfied with their efforts.
The title of this thread is " Windows Codename Longhorn - Really revolutionary?"
Hence his posts are relevent in helping users of this forum and of course the many outside people that use this forum for information. Its a known fact that Windows has many security holes (i actually like M$ but still u have to admit the facts) and Demandred was merely commenting his opinon of if Windows longhorn is going to be revoluntary - which he clearly answers no.
Matty does have a point tho, so can both please quit your fighting, everyone is getting sick of it!

P.s i do think Windows Longhorn will be revoluntionary, maybe not the biggest step between technology in OS history but still none the less a big one :)

Didnt they take out the new file system because it was going to take them too long?
