Yes this is the official PDC thread for Neowin. All others will be deleted/merged here.

Here's some simple facts about PDC...


Yes a build of Longhorn will be released to the attendees on the 26th of October. It will be on DVD and will contain a lot of other developer related material and slides etc.

Yes the build will be available to customers with a MSDN universal account sometime after PDC.

the MSDN people said it wouldn't be on MSDN, so where are you hearing it will be at? They said the only thing on MSDN will be the development documents.

From Andy Boyd [MS] in the MSDN newsgroups:

It is likely that we will have some method for subscribers to get access to
the alpha bits, though it may or may not be through download.  I understand
that it is a popular download, but it remains an Alpha and as such there are
support and registration issues to work out before we can make an
alpha-quality-level download available to half a million subscribers.  This
is definitely something that we're working on for our customers, but I don't
want to set an expectation that we'll start providing the download during
the PDC keynote.  It is likely that we'll have somehting in place for our
developers, I just can't say (because I don't yet know) exactly what.
