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.

Look, Vista isn't the best OS that MS has ever produced, but it does function OK.

I'm sorry, but just "functioning OK" isn't good enough when the company in question is the most profitable software house on Earth, Vista is (was) your flagship OS and you're the run-away market leader for desktop OSs.

In situations like that, i'd expect the OS to function briliantly rather than just "OK" compared to some free OSs.

But then maybe I expect too much from my market leaders?
