Windows As was to be expected, the Longhorn Reloaded team has been shut down by Microsoft. "It is with sad news that I have to inform you that today due to a cesit and decist letter we recived from Microsoft we are no longer able to provide you with a download link to Longhorn Reloaded. It deeply saddens me that although Microsoft hknew about this project for many months they only issued us with this notice a few days after we started to distribute the iso via torrents and ftp server."

Technically, a cease and desist letter has no legal force, and is only a curtosy... but, oh well. Then again, this move wasn't exactly unexpected: you can't give away commercial products for free.

I wonder what they're going to do now? I can see ReactOS getting a number of new developers with experience in Windows hacking, and all sorts of projects can use people who have experience writing Windows drivers...

EDIT: Also, by 'hknew', I think you meant to type 'have known'...
