Hello i'm a little new to this so could anyone tell me what kind of code I should learn so I can debug and fix issues with the builds. Specifically Windows Longhorn.

Thank you!

I'm not sure but maybe you can try learning C++, Assembly, or .NET?

Exactly.

But you can also repair many mistakes (provisionally) in the register. The the most important language is .NET which is necessary or to repair explorer. (Memory Leak, and Sidebar).

I think Explorer in Longhorn was coded in .Net.
