          Are you sure about that? I thought Blackcomb was going to be the server version of Longhorn...

              Skiing is better. I just thought I'd add that, as I'm a skier.

                  No. They are two seperate kernal versions (with blackcomb being superior). Longhorn was meant to be a desktop/server release with blackcomb as the following desktop/server release. Then they dropped Longhorn server. No word on what has become of Blackcomb desktop yet. I just know that they pushed the next generation technology set for blackcomb desktop into Longhorn. Probably to compete with linux.

                    I would love to beta test MS products, what does it take to beta test these products?

                      Signing up when they ask for Beta Testers. I had a chance to Beta test Directx 9.0 but I decided not to.

                        Not exactly that easy anymore, to test internally MS prefer's 3+ yr experienced MCSE's or CCIE;s

                        Testing DX is a good start though for younger people, need to slower work your way up and start somewhere. Feedback and accurate beta bug feedback are the most important, not always the number of bugs, but the quality of the bug report so it can be resolved properly, of course reporting one bug isnt gonna cut it either lol.

                        I got scott and freddie or kier (i forget which i get them two mixed up so much) into Microsoft betaplace there currently in MS windows update beta version 4 and will also join version 5, they will likely be invited to test longhorn.
                        I plan on nominating them to test it,, i will be very busy but still plan on testing longhorn also....
