Have you seen what is going on ? I loved this idea... :rofl:

JoeJoe's Team is working on a kind of Longhorn Mod, they've done some nice things so far ....

I've already seen comments on ZDnet, Flexbeta and Winfuture, they're famous !

Should old, abandonned operating systems just fade away? Or is there some way to breathe new life into them – without running afoul of the copyright police?

A handful of members of the Joejoe.Org Windows enthusiast site may soon find out. A self-selected group of site members have begun building a Longhorn-client-based, community-developed product they currently are calling “Longhorn Reloaded.”

On October 19, a Joejoe developer identified as “RayM” posted a call for others interested in banding together to take one of Microsoft’s pre-2004 test builds of Windows Longhorn (Build No. 4074, released at WinHEC in 2004) “make GUI (graphical user interface) modifications and redistribute the ISO with our modifications in it.”

“As every longhorn fan knows microsoft cancelled the longhorn project and started the new os ‘Windows Vista,’ said RayM. “My idea was to discuss what features we longhorn fans want to have in longhorn, and try to create modifications and add them to one of the latest builds, to continue (microsoft’s) work on the Longhorn OS.

“then maybe we can put all our creativity all together in one new Longhorn OS!! Just to put all modifications we made for Windows Longhorn in a stable and good looking build of microsoft and make it our Joejoe build of Windows Longhorn Operating system!!” RayM continued.

Since the initial Longhorn Reloaded posting, a number of Joejoe forum participants have joined the effort and have began soliciting wider participation from testers, skinners, designers and programmers.

It’s unclear whether any of the individuals interested in participating in the project has contacted Microsoft. It’s also not clear under what type of license the group is considering releasing the product, if and when they can deliver it.

Another Joejoe forum participant, “Mike,” refuted the notion that Microsoft could fight the Longhorn Reloaded project: “There are dozens of XP Custom editions out there, and not even any Microsoft Employee does care a single bean about it. So why not just make the same with Longhorn. It could end in a cool Longhorn build with lots of cool features and stuff."

Mike said he intended to replace Internet Explorer with a browser built in the Mozilla rendering engine, which he dubbed “Longzilla Explorer.”

Great Idea, but i remember running that build, and it had no driver support and very few applications ran on it.

More power to them! :)

Yes nvyseal, its true, but i also remember that 4074 and 5048 were the only builds i could use for more than a month without reinstalling for some reason. :(
