    Microsoft Corp. is creating a new central engineering division that
    will work on the core of the Windows OS (operating system), the
    company said Monday.

    The Windows Core Operating System Division (COSD), within the
    company's Platforms Group, will be responsible for the core OS
    platform, including development, program management and testing,
    Microsoft said in a statement sent via e-mail.

    working on the next version of Windows, codenamed Longhorn, which most
    industry watchers expect to be released in 2006. Microsoft Chairman
    and Chief Software Architect Bill Gates has called Longhorn the
    biggest Microsoft release of the decade and bigger than Windows 95.

    The newly formed division, described by Microsoft as a "center of
    gravity for advancing engineering excellence within Windows," will

    Washington, company said.

    Linux, Unix, and alike are secure because aint nothing there that anyone
    would want. **** looks like DOS anywho. I can pee on the wall and it would
    look better that your so called GUI **** or Gnome or X-window or whatever it
    is you call it.
