    Since the WinFX CTP hit the street, I can already see that Longhorn is out of the question.  What do I mean?  Well, with such a large install base on WinXP and no real advantages to Longhorn, people may as well have forgot about it.


    And who says Microsoft hasn’t changed.  This was definitely a move for the customers.


    Anyway, I predict that the version that is after Longhorn –which includes WinFS, will be the kid to watch.  That will be the final fulfillment of PDC2003.
