As you already know, Windows Vista (bleh!) was once codenamed “Longhorn”. Along the way from the start of the project to the release, several features were cut from Vista. Essentially, anything that made it something other than “Windoex XP with a new UI and a couple security ‘fixes’”.
Some of Vista’s programmers, unhappy with the sorry state of Vista, started an unauthorized project dubbed “Longhorn Reloaded”. Their goal? They wanted to build the OS Vista should have been. Unsurprisingly, Microsoft just sent them a Cease and Desist.
How dumb are those people at Microsoft? They give us the Worst OS on the Planet™, and expect us to buy it. Are they determined to make the future of computing worse than the present?
