    Somewhere between "way too much" and "way more than its worth." There will be several different versions (five, IIRC). Which one were you looking at? Also, are you talking about a retail or OEM copy? Note that any answer your given will be based mostly on educated guessing.

    I thought I heard that longhorn would be the next server operating system. I might be wrong, but oh well. So when is vista coming out (another delay)? Is there going to be a home or pro version or just one?

    Longhorn was just a name that was used in development stages (like a code name). The chosen name for the new operating system is Vista. To summarize: the operating system previously known as Longhorn no longer exists since it will be released as Vista.
    According to MS we should see Vista on the shelves before the end of this year. October?

    Alphas and eventually betas could always be acquired and still can. Granted, there was absolutely no advantage to using them over XP unless you wanted driver problems and even instability. Since then it has gotten a lot better, and you can still get copies very easily.
