This is all nonsense. I've seen Longhorn running on a laptop that

will be at least as unstable and useless as everything else MS has
released.

You have seen a pre-alpha version of the upcoming Longhorn, that looks a little bit to what Longhorn will be. I have seen it too, and played with it. It is pretty much Windows XP with a different interface and some add-ons to make XAML work, rudimentary. It is *not* Longhorn. By 2006 --which by MS time system it might as well be 2010-- things would have changed quite a bit...
