Funny part after reading the comments that Longhorn is actually named after a bar in Canada...LOL

And even if it was named after a cow..I would LOL as well. Because a cow isn't that bright which leads me to believe Longhorn isn't very bright either.

"Longhorn is their Mac OS X". Well, I was kind of hoping that they wouldn't get that far. Whether or not it's going to be difficult for them, they'll eventually get it down. Apple needs another trump card if Mac OS X in its current incarnation can't outclass Longhorn in every way. What's going to be the new feature/innovation? What's going on inside the Apple?

"look at how much faster we can go" - Steve Jobs. Hmm maybe I should make that my signature?

There's a lengthy post war going on after that article. I couldn't be bothered reading half of it. I'm not concerned with trying to prove which os/platform is better. I've tried (and have to use) them all and I prefer this one, even at 3% market share. If others don't, that's fine by me.

If steve thinks Longhorn will only be where Jaguar is at currently, he's foolish.

Do he really think OS X is that far ahead of XP. I mean really.

what'll be really interesting is how well longhorn will get along with pc apps. i always hear my pc friends moaning and groaning when they gotta install new software and/or hardware. this driver doesn't work, there's support in xp for this card, etc.

Yeah how it works with apps will be interesting. Cause i know when OS X first came out, most of the apps use to boot up in OS9 Classic, i'll take a while, but they will get there.

Great, so when Longhorn comes out, it will have an embedded version of XP...>

to handle the older programs? Wow, talk about bloatware.
