Windows Amidst all the WikiLeaks hoopla, there's also actual regular news going on. Windows 7 is barely out the door, and we're already dealing with Windows 8, which is indeed being worked on but will not arrive for at least two years. There's some rumours from an Italian website which state that the 64bit version of Windows 8 will have a completely new interface called Wind. Right.

Well, having a few MB of stack for processes (including kernel) is a good aspect of today's overpowered desktop computers, because you can say "there's more than enough, if I use it correctly I don't care". 2MB was really small in sense that software had to care a lot about stack usage, and thus limit the use of function calls as an example. This is not the case today.

64MB should be more than enough for simple tasks, though.
