You can get LH from MS now.

no.

is a fool. It won't work properly, and the first time you try to update it from a Longhorn update site (which won't be online for at least two years anyway) you're likely to find that your machine will refuse to start Windows next time you reboot.

As for "profits over priorities" - what on earth does that mean? Microsoft isn't selling these copies, pirates are, and they're the ones making the profit.

Windows XP SP2 isn't coming too soon by the way. I'm about to start beta testing it, and it won't be available for another five or six months.

Well not the Gold version but MS will give you LH for development.

I certainly won't buy a pirate anything. My other half bought a tape way back in 1984 for my mum of Phil Colins From Bankok and the quality was awful. Needless to say we binned it. I know we all like a bargain but I also like quality.

Hey I have never been to Bankok and I have bought my mum all the cds from Virgin etc. My other half saw it and thought it was ok. He was (and so was I ) in his early 20's then and green to pirating. I'm even wary of buying anything at a computer fair. even hardware. And as my other half is now chief internal auditor of a large multi national company I think we're all well aware of the law in this household, as law is part of the Accountancy degree.

Read the mail properly before you decide to have a go. This isn't the place for flaming me. as I'm innocent.

OK I'll forgive him. as to MS LH. hmmmmm I've yet to come across an early version of 'WINDOWS' that would run without a glitch. I'd be too cautious to install. (had xp home upgrade for 4 months before it actually went on the PC)

Demora :-))
