does anyone know how i can get a copy of "Windows Longhorn"
like in the picture below.. not Vista...
vista is longhorn completed. longhorn was just a codename for it, never an actual release
A codename that took 5 years of development to become Vista.
i want the longhorn so i can run that OS DUH!!!
i don't know what you didn't understand in my first response. its was never officially a release.
Longhorn IS Vista. They are the same. What about this is so confusing?
You're not going to find such an early and old (alpha, I assume) from anywhere legitimate, and especially not on a Mac forum.
Do some googling.
this guy understands.. i want THAT Longhorn to use. NO Vista or XP. A Milestone Version or such.
I Tried Google, got no luck...
Out of curiosity, why?
Erm... join MSDN? But doubtful even they can make it available. Also I'd recommend spelling words in CAPITAL LETTERS so that people will be sure to understand WHAT you MEAN.
The question still remains though, why would you want to use an ALPHA release of a platform?
Longhorn (the picture you supplied) looks a hell of a lot better then what it became. But that's not a reason for you to use it as your primary operating system.
Is it me or am I not grasping this concept.
I/We many not be understandng what you mean, if so sorry however longhorn is the old codename for windows vista. Longhorn was never released as an operating system, there for very few people (Those who work for mi) ever got there hands on it. Microsoft has released vista which is a completed form of longhorn.
Well the only way i think you could get it is methods you can't discuss here. Since it was never for sale and very few people did have it. It will be near impossible to find online is my bet.
Actually, The name Longhorn is now used to reference Micro$ofts upcoming SERVER version Windows Vista. This will be the server OS that replaces the current Windows Server 2003...
I guess that Longhorn might once have refered to Vista....
You could always get the longhorn theme installed on vista or xp. And there was one decent build of longhorn forget what the build number was, but I can tell you it is hard to download as not many people have it.
It's probably so unstable that it's useless. You're not going to be able to run it as your OS, sorry.
