Windows Microsoft's Professional Developers Conference might be over, but that doesn't mean news about Windows 7 suddenly stops coming in. We have news for you on the elusive MinWin kernel, which created a sort of crazy hype a year ago, and Rafael Rivera found a way to enable the new taskbar on the pre-beta build handed out to PDC attendees. This build, carrying number 6801, didn't have the latest taskbar revamp - you needed a newer build for that, build 6933, which hasn't been released to the public.

So basically they
- made their big kernel lock a little less lame
- support more than 64 CPUs
- cut windows down to Servercore without really knowing what cut
- build a minimal system with just the kernel + a few bits
- haven't improved most of the kernel parts at all
- added some VM stuff

I see. The windows kernel world is innovating in at amazing speed ;)
