Windows Sunday night saw the release of several screenshots of Longhorn Build 5203. Many questions arose, in particular on Microsoft's Longhorn newsgroups. Mike Brannigan from Microsoft has taken the liberty to have tried to answer everyone's questions, questions often repeatedly asked.

I grow tired for watching people endlessly complain about how Microsoft does not do XYZ and that there platform has done it for 10 years.

If Microsoft didn't make such a big deal about how all of these older technologies that they're adopting are "innovative", I suspect many of us wouldn't care one way or the other.

It's hard to sit back and sit quiet, however, when the company continues to overstate their accomplishments and hype their products in the press for years before their actual release.

I suspect you'd see a less hostile attitude towards Microsoft on hobbyist/technophile web sites like this if they'd shut their pieholes and write decent code.
