Microsoft At Microsoft's Professional Developers Conference in Los Angeles, Microsoft is planning to provide programmers with the code for an early version of Vista, as well as Visual Studio 2005 and SQL Server 2005, both of which will be released in November. Vista, the client version of the next release of Windows developed under the code name Longhorn, is expected to be released next year. Screenshots of the PDC Vista build can be found here.

Yes it is quite amusing seeing various bits of really ancient code still around--in typical Microsoft style (witness the amazing array of Win 3.1/95/98/2K icons still present in XP). I suppose you could say their motto is "if it's broken, don't fix it/if it ain't broken, fix it" ;-)
