    thanks :lol:

    but if i was really a geek, i'd be running linux, and know how to use the fucking thing.


    at any rate, I STRONGLY believe that longhorn will be the DEMISE of Microsoft.
    Linux is taking over in 2k+5

    I like the fact that they're calling it "Longhorn". Now if it's the "demise of Microsoft"... whether or not that'll make me happy to be associated with the Longhorn name and Microsoft is another thing.

    :lol:

    Can I have a copy of the Alpha B?

    Sweet. I'm too busy trying to keep up with the newsgroups downloading games and movies... I'll have to resurrect one of my spare "blocks" to run this alpha on.

    the new longhorn is supposed to have an interface with some type of digital copy protection chip on the MB. rendering windows useless for copying and type of copyrighted material.

    OS= operating system, i.e. windows, linux, os10 blah blah blah, you are probaly running windows xp or something on your computer and that is your operating system.
