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."

The bloat i mentioned goes to the reactos resource department in their intepretation of the Explorer shell , from the beginning it was 200 kb... ...however the 1 mb explorer.exe in reactos looks like bloat to me...


In the days of terrabyte hard drives, do you really think a few hundred kilobytes here or there is bloat?

Even if it was 10Mb, on a modern computer, that is far from bloat. OK, if you are still using a 486 with 16Mb of RAM, you might have problems, but on a typical 2007 PC, a 1Mb executable is trivially small (i.e., not bloat).
