Longhorn in 2006
Sunday, August 29, 2004 02:56 AM
Microsoft has announced that the next version of the Windows client operating system (the thing called "Longhorn") will be available in 2006, which means will see it on the corporate desktop a year or two later.
What might be more important is that some of the technologies previously planned only as part of "Longhorn" will be made available on other versions of Windows, as well. Specifically, Avalon and Indigo will be available on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.
MSDN published an updated Longhorn FAQ containing information about WinFX on down-level Windows.
