Next Microsoft Operating System "Longhorn" Delayed until 2006

October 14 2003

Well, Microsoft execs have finally admitted that the next major operating system release after Windows XP, code named "Longhorn", wont ship until 2006.

See this for the news.

What blows my mind is that Apple can release a new version of OS X every year, with a solid feature set, when Microsoft can't even predict correctly when the next release of Windows will be out. So even though Panther (10.3) will be out next Friday, we will have 2 more Apple OS updates before Longhorn ships. Nice. Glad I switched.
