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."

This is exactly one of the many reasons to reject non-Free software altogether and invest money into the development of Free software. With Free software, not only do you have the right to use the software as any way you wish, you also have the right to go to any software developer and have them change the program to fit YOUR requirements; there is absolutely no need to be dependant upon the author of the software.
