Anyone who believes that has been on the bong too long. Always on internet connection?! Half the world doesn't even have access to that, let alone afford it. Widescreen?? Come on.

I heard a rumour that it needs you have a bull$hit detector. A lot of people on that site failed the first requirment it seems.

Agreed. Widescreen? WTF? Why can't it handle the normal aspect ratios? Will it be fixed resolution?

I call shenanigans.

Current system configuration

Longhorn runs like a charm after you fix the bugs :)

Stupid analysts. Longhorn will require a 1.4GHz P4/1.2GHz Athlon/1.0 GHz Centrino processor, 512MB RAM, 32MB AGP Direct3D 7 videocard (64MB DX9 card HIGHLY recommended) and 8GB hard drive.

lol. That was funny. Only 5% of computer users would probably have a 5GHz processor even in 2006. By 2006 they'll probably have faster processors out, but still, most people won't be near that level. That's insane.
