Just heard this today verbal via 3rd party or more.<br>Wondering if anyone here heard something similar ?<br><br>This IT guy told me that a computer store manager told him that.<br><br>Longhorn now named Vista is shelved.<br>Apparently the programing team working on the project had a meeting with Balmer and Gates and simply said that what they wanted in MS next release cannot be done ?<br><br>The rumor sounds fishy to me at best.<br>However longhorn features was stripped down and then renamed Vista.<br>So maybe Vista features is going to be stripped down further and end up only being a maintenance update to XP ? ?<br><br>
Maybe the site did not get the news yet ? if its even close to being half true.<br><br>Interesting how MS makes the big bucks by dividing Vista up into 8 different products. 4 OS versions for consumers to ponder over and 3 OS versions for pros to ponder over, assuming they would have to all upgrade as they grow.<br><br>
The link was my polite way of saying your rumor is BS <br>There was a link posted last month of Gate's keynote address at a developers conference. It was impressive, and I bet if you took a look at it you'ld laugh off this rumor too.<br><br><br><br>
That site is produced by MS fanboy #1 Paul Thurrott - he's the biggest MS zealot you'll find. If that rumor is true, he's probably still crying.<br><br>Though remember, Apple's Copland (and thus Gershwin) were shelved far into development too. It wouldn't be the end of the world for them.<br><br>
