One of our forum regulars, John Smitthers, has posted his own early Windows Longhorn Tweaking Guide in our forums. If you managed to find a leaked version of Longhorn, this to the point style guide promises to get your Alpha version of the upcoming Microsoft OS up to speed in no time.
As many of you know a Windows Longhorn Alpha was leaked in September of 2002. Most people think because this was an Alpha release, that it is not a stable functioning microsoft standard. Out of the box Longhorn is not only unstable, but slow. In this guide I will attempt to teach you how you can make Longhorn your primary OS. IMHO Longhorn is even better than XP Pro, when tweaked enough!More information in our Windows Forum
Firstly it is important to obtain a bootable Longhorn Alpha. The original Longhorn Alpha is not able to be burnt and ran from CD, unless you follow the following tutorial, or similar Bootable Longhorn.
