Don Box's Spoutlet: Logan on the API War

Don Box's Spoutlet: Logan on the API War "Indigo (one of the three "pillars of Longhorn") does in fact install on XP and Windows Server 2003. The experience on all three platforms should be comparable.
Also, for those who can still stand to look at COM, Indigo should be quite usable using COM APIs (e.g., CoCreateInstance, CoGetObject, CoSetSecurityBlanket), so for a lot your COM skills will still apply.
I know its fun to paint MSFT as clueless dolts who don't care about developer or customer investments, but the reality isn't quite that black and white."
