osnews is reporting that long horn could be released between late 2006 and mid 2008, but could be released even later. this is a long time for an updated OS for the desktop. what, thats anywhere from 5 – 7 years and we will still have Windows XP? this could be the chance for other OS’s to take up the x86 market. My bets are on either Linux, or OSX if the eMac 2 is released, or even if it isent and apple drop the price of the iMac
