is longhorn a REALLY dumb name for the new OS? I think it is.
XP sounds SO MUCH cooler and professional to me. Oh well... :roll:

Its just the codename. I forget what the codename used to be for Windows XP, but it was also something strange if I recall.

oh I tried the XP's


didn't care too much for the yuppie look of an OS
plus why would I need an OS with an administrative account,
to manage my own logon?

all them damn NFS rights ...

Inherited rights filters ... buggyyyyyy

can you say: you do not have rights to that ?
I knew you could !

Naahh ... just wasn't for me,
I like my tweaked 98se best.

You should see my Registry .... nice, lean and clean !

There we go, that was it. I just couldn't think of that dumb name either. I am sure they have some kind of meanings behind them. Who knows :mrgreen:
