Default Microsoft Longhorn in 2006? Well, maybe

SEVERAL SOURCES here have insisted that not only is Microsoft highly unlikely to get its up and coming Longhorn OS out by Yuletide next year, it may not manage to deliver the real McCoy until four or five months later.
This is likely to infuriate the usual collection of hardware vendors.

And system integrators are likely to be hacked off as well, because Microsoft expects them to roll out a Longhorn logo system towards the end of this year.

Perhaps Microsoft is hoping that other governments in the world will roll out a COA (certificate of authenticity) law like apparently the US has, which was signed into law on Christmas Eve at 23:23.

What that means is you can't transfer a machine or give one away without peeling the certificate of authenticity off.
