Oh godd, not again. A new OS in the works...............man......This is a new .Net based desktop OS, planned for release well after Vista. A few references exist on the Microsoft web site, but nothing official yet.

HAHA, guess what I got now? Because I'm a student at Cal Poly and a CIS student, we have been granted membership through MSDN. I get everything all FREAKING FREE!!!! OH my god, I'm getty from excitment. All I have to pay is the shipping and handling if I choose to order it. They're pretty much .iso files for the download version. I don't seem to see Vista on there so I guess it's an MSDN Academic Alliance sort of thing. I have to browse that site to see what I can get..

Dude, I have access to like every single Microsoft OS and software available there for free. Unbeliveable. Everything from Enterprise/Servers OS-software-etc., to everything else. Still no Vista, but that's ok. I have access to a whole bunch of developer stuff too. I'm going to download all of the tonight.

But still, free Microsoft software?!?!? That is nuts.....

TRD ... look on there for longhorn ... thats Vista. They just haven't changed the name yet on MSDN. I installed it over the weekend on an HP zv5220 3000+ 512 mb (2700) laptop with nvidia 32 mb geforce card. Seems to work fairly well with that. Not seeing any issues with video, 'course I've not tried running anything intensive on it ... yet.

I don't see Longhorn unfortunately, darn it. But here's a list of what I can get for free. So cooooool:







Here's a sample of me getting Server Enterprise Edition, lol. At least shows you that its FREEEE:



Here's another view of the site, with me logged out of course:



It OWNS, but again, I wish Longhorn or Vista would be on there. Oh well. With the number of software I have access too, Vista can wait...I'm downloading Windows XP Pro with SP2 on it. I need it bad because I have the crack version now and it won't install SP2 properly. I like the security integration in SP2.

Next, I want to get the Virtual PC and try it out. Half of that stuff I probably won't even use unless I'm running like a business or something, so I don't know about those programs. I like the MSDN knowledge library. Wow, a complete set.
