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.

Vista found itself managing systems with more than 64 total cores.


and

In fact, they were making investments in quad-core systems earlier in Vista's lifecycle than originally anticipated


So Vista is dog slow because it can't cope with 64 cores or even 4. Well I wish my box had 64 cores, which it doesn't - why then is it dog slow with two cores or even one - in fact why is it dog slow?

This feels like an explanation of the form, if you can't baffle them with science baffle them with bull shit.

Oh just installed Windows 7 and other than drivers being a big problem it is quite nice, quite fast, quite responsive - its OK.
