Windows Ah, MinWin. The elusive project in the Windows team that has been misunderstood more times than I can count. Once again, Mark Russinovich, more or less the Linus of the Windows world (I win stupidest comparison of the year award), has explained what MinWin is all about, while also touching upon a number of other changes to the core of Windows. Before we start: thanks to BetaNews for once again detailing these technical talks regarding the core of Windows so well.

I think it's really easy to get a bit superior, especially those of us who daily work on a robust OS that doesn't fall prey very often to viruses and spyware. Thanks for injecting some much-needed perspective to remind us to be more humble -- after all, the 'guys in the trenches' are software engineers who love software engineering, just like those who work on OS X, BSD, Linux, etc, and it's a bit short-sighted to think that they intentionally write bad code.
