Who’d expect that? 2005-06-16 3:34 pm Please, can we have more fact based news and less “some time in the future this pre-beta 1.0.2xyz of a marketing driven useless variation of well known product is going to be released” stories? It’s just marketing bullshit and it’s getting ridiculous. 2005-06-16 6:42 pm I though it was a useful article actually, and a home version of a server OS with proper integrated setup tools like SBS has is long overdue. sure linux can do these things, but not as easily as windows can. 2005-06-16 7:54 pm I just wonder sometimes whether a certain article regarding the MS Windows codebase was on point. It discussed the probable situation that Windows OS code has so many hacks and spaghetti code that it makes it much more difficult to add additional functionality than, say, MacOSX or OSS OSes. The speed at which Apple is developing is staggering compared to the service packs MS continues to develop – longhorn included. It seems to me like they went from grandiose promises to now what seems like an insignificant upgrade. The Longhorn release went from complete re-write of much of the internals to just another 2k->XP upgrade. What’s going on? Have they hit the “innovation ceiling”? I see only a few reasons why you would want Longhorn, but NO reasons why you HAVE to have it. 2005-06-22 4:13 pm Longhorn is coool… I’m going to use, anyday, anytime! Concerning what u said: “What’s going on? Have they hit the “innovation ceiling”? I see only a few reasons why you would want Longhorn, but NO reasons why you HAVE to have it.” The more “bad” comments about M$ products, the better they are. The funniest thing is that The more innovative they (M$) will become.
