Join the USAF to get longhorn

Thanks for this one ooo!

"Seems Texas fever has hit the Air Force — sort of. The service's Standard Systems Group Joint Development Program (SSG-JDP) this month will start providing feedback on Microsoft Corp.'s next operating system, code-named Longhorn, according to officials from both organizations.

The SSG-JDP was designed to test Air Force-developed products against Microsoft's Windows environment, according to service officials.

Barry Hartmann, SSG-JDP program manager, said that this month, JDP Windows partners will discuss planning and get customer input on Longhorn. They are also awaiting military approval to begin testing in Microsoft's .Net environment.

In addition to the Air Force and numerous commercial partners, the Army, which has its own partnership with Microsoft, is also invited to next month's Longhorn event, according to David Horton, Microsoft's program manager for government requirements."
