the way i was looking at it is longhorn must be horrible if the
marketing has to get this much of a running start on reviews before
the actual scheduled release(was it 2006?). if you heard there was a
movie/game/tech that had marketing running for 3 years before
release, wouldn't that be a sign of major suckage to you too?
