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."

Just wanted to remind that contract violation is not a crime (it just nullifies the contract).


It isn't subject to criminal law, but under civil law, you can be sued for breach of contract. Don't think you can just breach any old contract and get away with it, you will most likely be penalised. In fact, penalties for breach of contract can run into the billions of dollars, and if you don't or can't pay, you may wind up in prison. Breach of contract is not a trivial thing - contracts, whether verbal or long formal documents, are the glue that holds society together, and the law does not treat those who breach contracts lightly.
