    Longhorn Query

    Is there a beta/trial version of Longhorn available anywhere?

    I have a few clients who are interested in it (if its available). I am able to download a copy of "winfx" through my works MSDN subscription but cant seem to find any beta/trial of longhorn.

    It may not even be available yet.

    Thanks

    Yeah there are versions of the beta around - for testing purposes. I believe you can get it from Microsoft's MSDN website as a beta tester, but I couldn't find anywhere I could download it (well I was looking quickly)..

    Also I found it on the bitTorrent networks, but apart from it being illegal to download microsoft stuff from there, I doubt the quality of it - a decent copy off Microsoft will be your best bet, although I have seen copies of the latest beta build floating around on eBay.

    Cheers, I will have to convince work to let me log in to the MSDN site to see if I can get a copy from there

    Not sure, to be honest I havent really looked into getting longhorn much yet, however www.winsupersite.com might be able to shed some light on it.
