Windows Microsoft's Professional Developers Conference is currently under way, and as usual, the technical fellows at Microsoft gave speeches about the deep architecture of Windows - in this case, Windows 7 of course. As it turns out, quite some seriously impressive changes have been made to the very core of Windows - all without breaking a single application. Thanks to BetaNews for summarising this technical talk so well.

The part of the scheduler you're talking about has been per-cpu and scalable since Windows Server 2003. The Dispatcher Lock was for synchronizing other APIs which have no equivalent on Linux.
