Nice screenshots! I love the way Longhorn looks and can't wait for the retail version to come out. The only thing I find annoying maybe the new SideBar. You can remove that right?

No one knows at the moment. I would say DVD cos it will most probably be a larger size on disk than XP, but I'm not sure.

Its already DVD in the Alpha Build - 709, up to 720Megs? Ish.

The final install is supposed to take around 5 Gigs. It will all be batched like any Install but its still going to be a DVD.

Wow. 5 Gigs??? That's 1/4 of this PC's hard drive. Ah well, it will be aimed at enthusiasts, won't it "The Cop-Out King"

Aimed for normal people; anybody with a Computer Capable of running it will have a 30, 40Gig Hard Drive. They cost about 10 now You're either tight - or have nothing on your computer.

Hah, what I love about linux is that you have installs as small as 50 megs (DamnSmallLinux), or up to 6, 7 gigs (Full package install of Fedora Core 3)
