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.

Actually I'm pretty sure that exokernel designers would differ with your opinion on the kernel being the best at memory management. see here http://pdos.csail.mit.edu/exo.html

The drawback is exokernels have an inherent bloaty tendency that could be avoided though...
