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."

And I'm sure Microsoft would be more than glad to give it to them, for a small bit of legal wrangling that the Longhorn Reloaded people can't possibly win.

I won't mention any words as to what would be on this award, but think along the lines of a Techno Darwin award for what it takes to earn it.

I agree with Morgan above: they'd be far better off expending their time and resources on something that will actually matter and be useful to someone, something that won't get them dragged into court if they can't see the logic and correctness in not attempting to work with stuff they have no rights to use,.
