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.

eh well... client server model for graphics for one
and also MinWin is supposed to be closer to linux in terms of embedability (I assume) and apropriateness on a sever ie lacking higher level graphics interface

That said I personally don't think MinWin or any version of windows will be anything like Linux. Linux is just too diverse for that matter.
