Longhorn beta dates

“About time too”.

Paul Thurrott reports from WindowsITPro the following dates for the Longhorn beta releases:

  • Beta 1: Late July
  • Beta 2: November

Beta 2 is supposed to be “incredible” and far more interesting than most have been led to believe. Beta 1 will not contain any of the UI goodies I and so many others are excited about seeing. This first beta is aimed squarely at the developer community to begin familiarizing themselves with the new OS platform.
