  • Longhorn Not Delayed!



    Rumors about the likely delay of Windows Longhorn turned out to be just that as Microsoft’s Chairman and Chief Software Architect Bill Gates said Friday "Longhorns development has always been on schedule and will continue to be on schedule, we have no plans to delay the Client version of Longhorn and if any delay where to arise, it certainly wouldn’t arise this early".

    The rumors of the delay are suspected to have come from comments various Microsoft exec's made during recent interviews. However none of those executives mentioned any delay at all In fact, Longhorn's current track hasn't changed.

              I'm guessing you know why longhorn is called longhorn? Since you know a lot about windows I figured I should ask, why on Earth did they call an OS longhorn?

                    It is a type of cattle. Anyway, the version of windows that will suceed it is code named blackcomb.

                      I always thought it was named after a mountain range. I know Whistler (XP) and Blackcomb (who knows) were:

                        That is correct. Whistler and Blackcomb are named after mountains somewhere in eastern part of canada (not sure on location)

                              Yeah, a friend of mine who works at MS says their code names are names of actual places.
