View Thread: What can we ask from Windows "Longhorn Server" 2006

    Doesn't this vs that help though? You could take ideas from popular competing products and implement an improved version. You need something to compare to if you wish to improve a product. Visual Studio for example could probably be a lot better if there was a real alternative. If you only had this, then a product may never really get better.

    XP and in the future Longhorn probably have got some ideas from MacOSX (which is apparently very newbie friendly - not used it though)

    Because there is now credible competition, Windows should get even better (it hasn't really changed much visually since 95 - which IMHO was/is Microsoft's most successful product, completely different to Win 3.11, the big changes being 32bit support and the TCP/IP stack. NT has contributed NTFS and better security.
