Oh; it will be. I didn't see what any of the other Windows looked like in Alpha or even Beta because I did have the internet so much at the time but Longhorn will be, if you ask me, brilliant. It should certainly do that; I would be happy if it does nothing to Linux and whipes that last 4% of Mac off the mapp so that it owns 99% of all Computers! I wonder what the Monopoly Commission would do to that? If the opposition was stuck off all legally and therefore no way to stop it? Linux is like a Frog (French Person) that just won't die; so thats quite likely.

Users may enjoy their freedom - thus enjoying the luxuries of staying with a less monitoring OS, like XP, or, I have to say it, going with the cheaper, less constricting Mac or Linux.

It's a double edged sword.
Monitor Users? Its called the Customer Improvement Plan and its volunteery; it is on MSN Messenger and MSN Explorer. You get the choice. Don't know where your sources of them taking your personal information without your knowledge or conset has come from but its not true! That is true; Kazaa wouldn't start up at all and after a while not even Shareaza or Limewire would connect. Is that not just a problem with the Beta? I think they will see what will happen with SP2 with stopping P2P programs like Kazaa and learn that lesson quickly - allowing Kazaa on Longhorn. Do they take any personal details about you with this monitoring? I think not! They see what you're doing and what you're using and how its working - it is an improvement plan.

I continue to believe Windows will prevail and certainly by Blackcomb (about when I plan to join the Microsoft Graduate Program) Mac will have been crushed like an apple between the buxom of a large russian lady.

Good words. Until Microsoft bring out a 'Professional' Version to allow for the strengths and security and stability and great amount of usage that is carried out by people who go to Linux then I think there will always be a market for it. It is when Microsoft can show the younger generations that you can do all this with a version of Windows that Linux is doomed. God bring that day as soon as possible.

I think it's stupid when people bash either linux or microsoft, I like and use them both,, they both have their own strengths and weaknesses.

I'll let you into a secret LK, linux is getting bigger and bigger in computing industry because it is free to use, therefore companies get to save lots on licensing.
Denthúl the secret I have to let you into is this... no matter how much you hate Microsoft they are most definitly here to stay, there are too many people who rely on microsoft, too many home users using microsoft, who them expect to see it's familliar environment at work...
The advice I have for both of you is this... If you want to get anywhere in the world of computers you'll lesson your biased opinions of each OSW, and learn to use and love both. for all it's strreangths and weaknesses.

That is one of the many things I would like to do one day. Either under the banner of Microsoft (which would be great) or maybe even myself or with a group off the internet. Its just one of those things that sounds like a whole lot of fun even if it never works. I'll have to see how far my programming goes; I ordered Visual Studio 2003 yesterday, he sent it yesterday allong with MSDN Library 2004 so it should come in a couple of days! Then I can start some major learning.

They do both have their strengths and their weaknesses; I have to agree with you there.

I realise that! I'm not totally ignorant, yet. I don't think people stay on for those reasons; although they are the major reasons. If they were to move to Linux they would not the ease of use, the GUI, and the huge ability to use anything they buy for their PC. With Linux you would always have to worry what you're buying.

Hehe; I'll try my very best to prove you wrong there!

If anyone has a SuSe Linux CD they wish to give away, I wouldn't mind it as I don't like Mandrake.

You should try redhat. if you are as 'hard core' linux as your first post suggests then you should definitly try Debian. - It's not for the feint hearted.
