    Winbeta have got a few shots of what they claim is the new Windows NT6 operating system due in 2004.
    Theres been a number of dodgy posts on this subject, but these images look pretty real to me, what do you think?

    What I think is that I hope that there's a better, more user friendly Linux before then. :devil win

    um this doesn't look like a new OS at all. In fact it look like winxp with a new theme. Using stylexp or something like that. Either way I don't like it. I don't even like the default winxp look. That's why I'm using the classic look. ;)

    Winbeta is down at the moment, so the link isn't working.

    I agree. I'm diving headfirst into the RedHat world as soon as my copy gets here in the mail. Might as well learn it now and reduce any major learning curve when Longhorn pokes its ugly head into the world.

    Winbeta is back up, so the Longhorn/NT6 link is working again.

    A lot of people would move away from Microsoft if there was a viable alternative, but there just isn't.
    Linux, Mozilla and Star Office would work for a personal/small business user, but you would still have to use a
    Windows and DirectX solution for gaming.
    There is a lot of work to be done before Linux can ever become a serious contender to the Microsoft crown,
    I like so many others would like to see it happen one day.

    There's a Linux consortium around now involving some of the biggest names which is trying to develop sort of a universal installer for Linux and it's progs/apps/drivers which if this comes about then most flavours of Linux will be as easy Windows to install and setup but still give you the choice of what flavour you want. ;)

    M$ will have to watch out then. :D

    That would be an awesome addition to the Linux arsenal, but the problem still remains that gaming isn't up to par with XP, and thats a huge factor in market share. Compatibility.

    You realloy can't say it's your last M$ OS til you see longhorn. I think they did well with XP, so i use it, but frankly its to easy to use Windows, Linux is gonna take some learning. That might be the only reason i stay. Eventually i will learn thou, its on my list of things to do... eventually...

    And how did all our post numbers drop? I can't complain...

    BECAUSE I AM NOW A JEDIKNIGHT OF TWEAK!!!
