"Monad" and Windows Server Longhorn

I've recently seen some articles that have been speculating that we will be including "Monad" in the upcoming release to Windows Server Longhorn, and that we have removed it from the Windows Vista beta 1.  I just wanted to take a minute and comment on some of this speculation.  First of all, the "Monad" technology is not part of the Windows Vista platform in Beta 1 and is not currently planned for the final version either.  As for Longhorn Server, Monad is not planned to be in that release at this time.  "Monad" is still under development and is currently available as a beta.  We have not yet announced how we will be delivering the final version of "Monad", but as soon as we know, we'll be sure to let you know.

  • For R2, Longhorn Server B1 and Longhorn Client B1, Monad is a 1.5 mb download that works just fine.

    Just because MS may be doing a knee jerk reaction and are not going to include Monad on the DVD is no reason why Longhorn customers can't add Monad. NOTHING's being done to stop you from deploying Monad.

    And spekaing personally, Monady for me is far better today than CMD.EXE for scripting. So please excuse me if I decide to use the best tool for the job.

    If MS chooses NOT to load MSH into Longhorn (and heaven knows there's enough other stuff on the DVD!) that's their call. Personally, I see it as a reaction to a bit of silly news rather than taking a leadership position in the area of administration scripting.
