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."

They could modify it all they want for their personal use, but they can't redistribute the modified code.

They could have posted instructions on how to modify it along with tools to simplify the process, and that would have been legal.

That's probably what they should have done. As it was, it was interested to see how far they could hack Windows.
