I read somewhere that it's gonna be 222mb?! That can't be true, surely! If so, that's one huge update!
222Mb is not bad at all, in fact I'd like more! Hussar for Windows, and I cannot wait to get it

Longhorn, however, is going to be far superior to anything every brought out, and superior to all OS opposition until Windows Blackcomb afterwards! XP SP2 has been far too long if you ask me

Yes, why not! Long live Windows! Short of installing Windows, waiting for service packs is the best bit!

What's wrong with liking to update software? Its the most fun thing ever created!

Has anybody else seen the new Office 2003? Its bloody good - got it a couple a days ago and I don't think I could without it now!

Technically no, nothing anybody would use on a day to day basis on most of the Programs. Graphically however it is fabulous to the point of real and truthful beauty - it is very nice. Outlook is the best difference - and now I don't believe I could actually live without it and go back to Outlook XP!
