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.

Yes when complexity grows, ie when you feel that 26 drive letters is too little, I can understand it feels limited.

I still don't dislike the concept of having a forest though. Letters is simple and good enough for most users. For more complex scenarios, names sort of like the Amiga had would be nice. Drivename:\dir\file
