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."

"Today cooperations buy laws trademark laws, new copyright laws i dont defend them and refuse to subdue to any of them ."

This has NOTHING to do with "new copyright laws". It's the same old copyright laws that prevents you from buying a book, make copies of it and sell them.

"if u get an os its logical to do whatever you want with it if you evolve it with better codebase it becomes another product . "

You CAN do whatever you want with it. The thing you cant do is redistribute it with (or without) the changes you've made.
This is not rocket science people, stop acting like MS is the big bad boogie man here.

"Now they kill of an intresting OS that could probably evolve into a stable and nice OS. "

Only if by "stable and nice" you mean "superficial changes someone made to the product that MS spent a load of money creating".
