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."

Maybe it would give Vista a bad name

That's a joke but there is reality in it.

Microsoft has been fighting intense resistance to Vista. They've gone from strong-arming and taking WinXP off the market to rescinding their decree on virtualisation in the wake of poor sales past the initial surge of fanatics.

It may be obvious to all of us that it such a project as Longhorn Reloaded would go away quickly, but they probably thought that they were doing Microsoft a favour and that it would be embraced.
