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."

"you also have the right to go to any software developer and have them change the program to fit YOUR requirements"

You also have the same right with proprietary software, you can ask them to change it to fit your needs.
However, neither the company making the proprietary software nor the OSS developer is required to actually implement the change you want.
If you told me to make some change to one of my OSS programs and I didn't like that change I would, quite frankly, tell you to shut up or do it yourself. And even if you did do it yourself and sent me some diff's I would be under no obligation to add your changes.
