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 personally think that drive letters are easier to use than the way Linux does it, "E:\" vs "/media/usb-disk1/"

Really? I can drag and drop files to my USB Pen drive icon on my ubuntu desktop.. on windows only geeks know which driveletters correspond to certain pieces of hardware..

And the context menu 'send to' function extrapolates this problem.. send to F:\ which has a harddrive icon .. Windows always presumes prior knowledge.. it is NOT userfriendly and never has been..
