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 mount points aren't really user visible in Linux.

You plug in an external USB drive, and it shows up, usually labelled only as "4.0GB Disk" or something like that. If you've given the drive a label, that label shows up instead. This is consistent across most applications, and is far better than "E:".

Besides, most users don't notice drive letters in Windows either. I certainly don't - I stopped caring as soon as Windows stopped forcing me to remember what drive letter was which.
