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."

Seriously guys, if you want to build something on top of an OS, make sure that your foundation is based on open source and not a proprietary product made by a paranoid, trigger-happy company like Microsoft. In my book, you have only yourselves to blame for not realizing that this would happen soner or later, and you have only yourselves to blame for wasting your time.

So A for effort, F for priorities.
