    Cripes by the time "Longhorn" is fully and completely released, Mac users will be so far ahead of the game we're probably just be brains in jars iChatting each other by telepathy, our Mac OS XII biometric chips fitted snugly into our sensory core for the FULL fly-through experience.

    These WinBoobs are just pathetic.

    Hey Bob Muglia, I've got a job for your "advanced search functions" -- see if you can find a REAL DATE for release of this thing. While you're at it, maybe you could do a search to find the end of this long tunnel of virus attacks and security problems. That would be a good thing to find.

    I admit to have seen Monty Python's Life of Brian very recently, but this item REALLY makes me think of that scene where Pontius is looking very flustered because the crowd is laughing at him. Meanwhile, between gales of laughter they're yelling "WELEASE WONGHORN!"

    How about....

    When asking how long they have to wait for LongHorn, I see the scene from Sandlot where the kid is saying, " FOREVER...FOREVER....FOREVER"

    Longhorn better be able to wash my car, mow my grass and feed my pets with it taking so long. Search features taking until 2009? Please, how stupid do they think we are. Longhorn is constantly being delayed because MS has to keep spending programming time on patching and repatching and repatching the repatched patches of their previous virus, uhh operating system. If they would actually take the time to close the holes (like do a complete rewrite of Outlook) then they might finish Longhorn before the desktop computer becomes a thing of the past.

    Hands up all those that think MS will actually be ready in 2009? I thought so. I hope Intel aren't planning on making any radical new technologies in the next decade or two because they might have a hard time getting MS to support them in Xtremely Pathetic.

    Holy smokes!! M$ can't have anything developed now that will be worth a pile of c*** in 2009. Giving Google a 5 year notice that their core technology will be in Microsoft's crosshairs is the stupidest thing I've ever heard the Beast do. Although, they do have another 5 years to come up with even more absurd statements, so who knows?
