back with LongHorn

Thanks all for sharing my grief. I am back. back with Longhorn, the much awaited next generation operating system from Microsoft. This is what has to say about in its test launch

"graphical look of Longhorn -- particularly its transparency and animated windows -- are reminiscent of Apple's Mac OS X. Other features, such as the thumbnail image that pops up while users are scrolling through a long document, appear to be all-new ideas. The file system has already been well described, but Gates said it will fulfill a long-held vision of his that will pave the way for better searching as well as ways of grouping together e-mail, Web pages and documents that have previously been held in separate 'silos." Complete story here

Like all the stands, Microsoft will launch this in a gala function, but what we need to watch out is the emergence of linux & other unix-cloned operating system which will have tremendous feature rich & cost saving operations to go with. Gates will definitely know this and push the boundries in the longhorn. or that's what i hope to hear from him.
