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.

So they have removed their BKL years after Linux and now use unused RAM to cache disc, like most Unixes have for years (decades?). It's still Windows, i.e drive letters, a registry, faked single file hierarchy (explorer), device files (and OS objects) are still in a separate filesystem world, Win16/32/64 API, it's own standards rather than standard standards and it's still closed.
