Windows Server Longhorn Updated

Windows Server 'Longhorn' Updated

By Nate Mook, BetaNews

December 19, 2005, 4:20 PM

Alongside the December CTP of Windows Vista, Microsoft has released build 5270 of Windows Server "Longhorn." Both operating systems are available on the same DVD image. Although development is currently in line with the client build, the next Windows Server won't be ready until 2007.

It's not yet clear when Microsoft will split off development, but Windows Vista is expected to reach the feature-complete Beta 2 milestone in February, well before Windows Server "Longhorn." In addition to build 5270, Microsoft has also released a new Platform SDK and Driver Development Kit for its next-generation operating systems.

Useful Tip

If you're tired of pop-ups when you're browsing there are solutions. If you are running Windows XP, make sure you have installed Service Pack 2. Service Pack 2 should be automatically downloaded when you connect to the Internet. You can manually install it by visiting Windows Update. Service Pack 2 installs a pop-up blocker for Internet Explorer.

You can scan for spyware/adware which adds additional headache and pop-ups when you're browsing the web. Try Lavasoft's Adaware (Google for it) or Microsoft's new Antispyware.

You can also install an alternate web browser. Firefox, Opera, Mozilla, Netscape, and Maxthon are just a few examples of the many alternate web browsers than the default Internet Explorer that comes with Windows. I recommend Firefox. (

Single-click or double-click

For most Windows environments, you single-click a hyperlink, and double-click an icon. Typically when you are surfing the web everything is a single-click.

P.S. Buttons are single click as well. Sometimes double-clicking in web sites can cause very unwanted results.
