I was just wondering if anyone was planning on getting Windows Longhorn when it comes out. I do, but I'm prepared for any dissapointment though. :D

No idea. When the whole thing is a bit closer to finalisation, maybe I'll start thinking about it.

I'll switch to it when I'll think XP is not enough for me... right now, I have no issues with XP and don't need a new OS version :/

Anyways, it will be GPU consuming cause the desktop itself will use DX9 shaders and stuff for Bill knows what :p

No, you're the only one who doesn't want more features and added security ...

I am gonna get it. Not at launch though. Most likely I'll be getting a new PC by then with hardware to work with the OS and take advantage of the features. But that won't be for at least a year.

When its done? Late 2006? Who knows?

I will see how the reviews are, then maybe think about it.

I don't want it. I don't need the new features, and Microsoft's 'new security' will be as bad as on XP, which I have no problems with. Any new security will be dissected by the same people who do it to Windows XP. Besides if Longhorn includes any of Microsoft's TCPA crap, I wouldn't want to let it touch my computer. That junk is worse than using Kazaa to download viruses.

I'll probably dual boot for a while. Then, once it becomes stable enough, I'll have that over XP most likely. I've already done some testing with it, and it seems like it'll eventually be a good OS... just needs to come into more of a beta state so it can get some drivers and support and such. Plays every game I through at it so far, though... just the gamma is a little dark in Quake III.

Sooner or later, i'll use it. There will be a point in wich most software will need longhorn to work, so i'll end making the swap. Besides, a hw accelerated desktop can be soooooooo cute *_* . That is, unless XGL makes me definitely go Linux way.
