    This is my first time being this deep involved with leaks and such but do you think m$ would go the same route as Longhorn?:confused:

    i mean
    its just a thought but would M$ call it quits on this like they did on longhorn?
    dont get me wrong it's shaping out to be a good OS but its not that different from 7. all these new features could be added in a hefty servicepack minus the new guis.


    Well, i'm calling it a night got a long walk home today. you guys think bout if m$ would do this and ill get back online tomorrow morn.

    If you are implying Windows 8 is another Vista, you are wrong :)

    not implying that at all. oh no no no..

    just a thought that hit me. it'd be amazing to see if the community would take it upon themselves to finish once again what M$ started.

    Honestly I'm having the same thoughts, sometimes leaks might demotivate MS from doing more... Longhorn also leaked like hell I think and hey, MS reset its development. Hope it won't happen with Windows 8.

    well developpement of vista was a huge mess, but not because of leaks! i'm 100% sure it will ship in time!

    Either way i always prefered longhorn reloaded over vista even if it was buggy i only changed when 7 leaked. XD ahh memories. lol
    I really hope this does ship 100%
    and another thing i really doubt it would hurt M$'s sales if this was cracked. i mean its not exactly insanely hard to do. just a bit of tinkering and what not.
