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.

Drive letters can be a nightmare in a company with any number of machines when handling network shares. Having arbitrary limits (26 letters because of english) is just dumb.

If you really want on unix mount stuff into /drive/a, /drive/b, etc...or hook an automounter into /drive
