Yes, a completely new O/S and file system. No word on the price. Good article.

New file system? SO something to replace NTFS you mean? Will this support older drives though with FAT32 or NTFS? for slave drives?

I know you'd have to format a drive for Windows for example, though what I mean is, could a slave drive just with files still use an old file system and work? Though it'd probably be worth formatting all drives to the new format

Open your Bank account to buy it, it looks terrific.
And consider also a wide screen monitor, to get a better view of it.

If you read the article it says it is supposed to be based on a'windows file system" No one knows what that is as they shut down and started over again in April.

Right, but will more than like still be NTFS because it is the safest so far. As to price I hear it will be about 20% higher than XP pro version.

it won't be a 3d desktop in that sense.
People always get confused about that, though it'll have the capability for some things to be.

At the moment, it uses 2D hardware using Direct X in software.

Though in longhorn, it'll use Direct 3d hardware to make all the windows, etc, so it should run faster on good cards, and better cards will have the capability to run more effects, which its the processor really that defines if you can now.

I have a feeling it'll come out in 2007, so still a long time yet
