    Windows Longhorn For Sale! Only $2 In Pakistan and Thailand


    I read an article in a magazine that i read and it said that pirate copies of windows Longhorn ( <-- named after Gates ) is available on the black markets of Pakistan and Thailand. This is obviously very embarrassing for Microsoft since it was not expected until 2005, next year. Microsoft claims they are pirate copies of the 8,000 Demo versions of Longhorn that were given out to programmers at some convention at Redmond.

    I Would appreciate if anyone has any links to similar stories :P

    I've heard of some leaked alphas, but I'm not sure that they're full versions.

    And last I heard, LH was pushed back to 2k6 (possibly 2k7?)?
