i thought winfs wasn’t going to be apart of longhorn since it wouldn’t allow them to complete longhorn in the timeframe they had? ah well.

a more stable windows os huh? does that mean its going to be more of a ram hog?

just tell me that i won’t have to download a 500mb “patch” a couple months later because they forgot to put in something called security.

lol everytime they release a OS they say its more stable and will never crash. Lol my XP professional has crashed and BSOD a few times :/

Hmmm, I wonder if those Aggies fans will purchase this OS when it debuts confused LOL Just kidding. Maybe *I* will finally do the upgrade when it comes out big surprise Amazing, huh? Hehe
