The register has an interesting article here. they say long horn is been given to attendies of the PDC (Professional Developer Conference) and its already on the net. there are Screen shots and info here and more here. looks pretty cool, but 2 years away. Also, this is windows 6. 2k was 5.0 and xp was 5.1. win2003 server was 5.2. so its a totally new build.
