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.

I was just quoting the article - However, my point is I don't think its just multiprocessor support that makes Vista dog slow. I use it on a dual core and it’s awful.

Folk complained about ME, compared to Vista ME looks like a good deed in a naughty world - admittedly the underlying technology in Vista might have been a step forward but the user experience is miserable.

MS apologists might like to say Vista isn’t that bad – if you run it on a quad core with 8 gig of ram it’s OK – it isn’t it’s awful something that MS will soon wish to forget. If MS had any decency they would make upgrades from Vista to Windows 7 almost free.
