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."

Too bad they didn't invest their time in open-source software...

Well, I guess they didn't want to?

Anyway, if they realize this sort of thing doesn't work, I think chances are a few developers will shift to an OSS project that tries to meet a similar end (ReactOS or WINE)

For all we know, several developers DO code for OSS, or have before...
