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.

MinWin isn't about the kernel (i.e. what runs in ring0) at all. It's mostly about ring3 components that have had lots of contributors and development by a large and diverse set of people (a number of different teams within Microsoft).

Few/no actual syscalls are affected by this.
