Hox, you've got a separate partition for these pre-alpha OS installs, I hope? These can be pretty buggy!

Its better than Shorthorn.

Ah, it's the newer version of MS Windows, coming out in 2006. The one Hox has installed is a pre-alpha, but it looks better than XP, and will probably have much better hardware support out-of-the-box.

It's all in its "Avatar". Have you ever wondered why Microsoft picked Longhorn as the code name for the new windows version? The symbol seemed to be strangely familiar, but I didn't know why. Then it hit me- go back to grade school, looking though Health or Biology text books for information on the subject, and only finding cryptic pictures like this one...

I guess Microsoft will really get a good,stable OS this time.Windows XP works nicely for me.But I would be glad to get my hands on Longhorn.I guess they will change the name as they did with Windows XP,Whistler to XP.

I liked Whistler very much and had it installed on my machine parallely for many months,I guess until I got my hands on Windows XP.When Windows XP was released I converted my system from dual-boot to single OS system.I love Windows XP SP2 beta.Guess what,its about 1 yr and 5 months since I have installed XP and I have not yet faced any problems.I will format and install Windows XP when MS releases SP2 officially.

LOL very funny!
i must say, if Bill was choosing his codename after my wife's uterus, it would be called ROUNDhorn not longhorn...she's pregnant!

@pranav:
i'm not sure i mentioned it, just said i thought i had...so i probably didn't.

@G:
LOL you sherlock!
the apartment move was long overdue anyway, we'd have done it anyway, but yeah it turnet out to be good timing.

with your interest in Ornithology, do you know what "Nesting" means? (in the context of pregnancy!)

Wow! Dodecahedron is right. Sherlock Holmes has nothing on you, MediumRare. :o

I think MediumRare needs a custom title to replace "CD-RW Player" and to reflect his uncanny powers of observation and perception. Anyone have any ideas?

That's a good suggestion. Perhaps we could modify to "Undercooked Clairvoyant" to complete the name/avatar/skills theme.

Whoa! That's right! It has been too long since I properly addressed the Great Polyhedral One. :oops: I beg your forgiveness, Esteemed Platonic Solid Potentate. :P
