No, it's not what you assume. But, it still may be of interest to some of you.

Looks impressive, but for Micro$oft to release an OS which *isnt* backwards compatible (just for force everyone to upgrade) is one HELL of a big gamble, one which I'm not sure will succeed... #### Toasty0 • Guest ##### Re: Meltdown US « Reply #2 on: June 03, 2003, 04:17:08 pm » Quote: Looks impressive, but for Micro$oft to release an OS which *isnt* backwards compatible (just for force everyone to upgrade) is one HELL of a big gamble, one which I'm not sure will succeed...

Hmm...what does this have to do with Meltdown?

Sorry- went off on a tangent

At the meltdown convention will be a preview of Micro\$haft's new operating system, codenamed "Longhorn" and due for release in 2005. Did some reading around on it, and posted without explaining what I was on about- apologies!!
