Someone asked me to compare Longhorn to Windows 2000 and I said:

The difference between Lornhorn and Windows 2000 is like the difference between shooting a bullet...and throwing it.

So that's the difference between throwing a bullet now.. or shooting it in 3/4 years (when hardware support/speed will finally warrant buying Longhorn)?

I'm sick of Longhorn already, and it's a *really* long time to it's release.

a bird in hand (throwing) is worth two (shooting) in bush.
