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."

All these guys did was edit a few resource files to put "LONG HORN IS RELOADED GUYS" all over Explorer.

I saw no functional improvement, nothing. It was a few nostalgic people with big ideas and small skills.

Exactly, I didn't get the point. It didn't appear that they did much of anything. My guess is this project would have disappeared on its own, regardless of what MS did. What were they going to do with a piece of closed-source, beta-quality software???
