    just wondering have anyone of you tried the beta relases of longhorn yet? ... my friend happens to be a microsoft developer and he was sent the longhorn beta cd's, and obviously i dropped around his place for a test drive ...
    ummm ...i like the sidebar (or whatever they call that thing) ...pretty useful ... but couldnt see much difference between the xp pro and longhorn ... but ma friend assures me that longhorn is technically very advanced and would be a breakthru in OS's .... does anyone of you know why is that?

    I recommend you go to http://www.winsupersite.com and read the Road To Longhorn articles. They will explain about Microsoft's next-generation operating system better than I ever can.

    yeah ... bugs will be there ...because you see...longhorn is in beta stages... and beta versions are meant to be scrutanized and exploited for bugs ...the more bugs you find the better it is for microsoft .. becuase this will point out the flaws in the betaOS which will be rectified in the final version ...so the end product will be much more stable and secure... clever!

    whats amazin about longhorn is that they are going to replace the internet explorer integration that ALL present version of windows have. that wud be cool.

    Where did you read that? I'm 99.99% sure that what you're saying is not true.

    ever heard of PC Plus? It's one of the best computer magazines of the world. that is my source. and it also said that longhorn will do away with the explorer.exe engine that is native to all previous windows versions.

    That makes absolutely no sense. Explorer and Internet Explorer are both integral to the functionality of Windows. They would not have put so much effort and development of so many operating system versions to make integration of Internet Explorer and Explorer.exe if they just intended to get rid of it in the future. Trust me they're not going anywhere.

    okay but half of the major problems windows has stems from these two components. think about that. longhorn will have no explorer engine, and the browser integration will be flexible, that is, any browser that the user wants.
