There was going to be a major new version of Windows after Windows 2000 that was going to end up being Vista, or even Blackcomb (the version after Longhorn). We got XP and 2003 instead, and Microsoft was confident we would get Longhorn in 2003 or 2004. You and they lost.

And once again, you people that live in these osnews fantasy worlds, are only too happy to make up whatever little stories that can pop into your demented little heads.

Whatever. Anyone who knows anything about Windows knows that there was going to be a version since 1995 that would have WinFS like technology along with various other enhancements that Microsoft has continuously wheeled out for each version of Windows since. Instead we get versions that are a pale shadow of their former selves, and end up being the version of Windows we should have had to start off with. 2000 -> XP for example.

Microsoft were absolutely dead set for Vista in 2003 or 2004, features were lumped in on the fly, features were cut back that were never going to be feasible and there were numerous codebases.
