Longhorn. Is it totally lost?
Maybe its me, but almost every month Longhorn appears to loose features (either by backporting the same feature or dropping them completely) - MSH ("Monad") appears to be the latest. Indigo and Avalon are already available as pre-release software on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 (hence why do I need Longhorn). WinFS has already been culled from Longhorn. What exactly do I get now in Longhorn over and above Windows XP/Windows Server 2003? Yeh, I know I kinda might get:
But I still seem to be short changed on Longhorn. Will we ever see Cairo?
