Generally, I run everything on there first before running native... If I can.

That way, if stuff happens such as the OS hating me, I just kill the Virtual Machine, and then rinse, latter, repeat.

It's beautiful.

I'm going to figure it out! I'm going to get transparency working.

Longhorn is f*cking awesome. I like IE's download manager. The only thing it needs is tabs and I know exactly how to get them :D

After testing Longhorn 4074 Reloaded, I have to say Vista/Longhorn Server 2008 has more features, looks and works better. I did like some features in longhorn that I wish was moved to Vista and Longhorn 2008, but you aren't really missing anything if you have Vista/Longhorn 2008.

My Longhorn 2008 ;)

Nice screenshots yanike. I always wanted to test out Longhorn's features, but didn't get the chance.

Yeah. But it's not buggy and some features in Vista I pick over longhorn. Especially how the sidebar is built in Longhorn. I hate that when you turn off the sidebar, you get stuck with that plain little blue/silverish theme. Also, it was a concept MS couldn't finish in 5 1/2 years.

Microsoft made some great improvements and I see no reason to go back. Microsoft needs to take some of the great features of longhorn (IE Download Manager and Pinning Favorites, Themes and others) and put them into SP1. If they do that, they will please the Longhorn fans. You never know! Maybe Microsoft shut down the project to use the themes and more in SP1. It be stupid not to since the response to LHR was so overwhelming.

Plus, the only way I see Windows working like that if it was built off Linux <-- The Beginning

Question is.... If Microsoft built an OS off Linux, how fast will you leave your Linux distribution for Microsofts? Knowing Microsoft doesn't offer any upgrade or fresh install of their OSes to anyone.
