Windows Earlier today, OSNews ran a story on a presentation held by Microsoft's Eric Traut, the man responsible for the 200 or so kernel and virtualisation engineers working at the company. Eric Traut is also the man who wrote the binary translation engine for in the earlier PowerPC versions of VirtualPC (interestingly, this engine is now used to run XBox 1 [x86] games on the XBox 360 [PowerPC]) - in other words, he knows what he is talking about when it comes to kernel engineering and virtualisation. His presentation was a very interesting thing to watch, and it offered a little bit more insight into Windows 7, the codename for the successor to Windows Vista, planned for 2010.

Except OSX was (from the Mac community's standpoint) a completely new OS, where Vista is just more stuffs piled onto NT5 (2000 and XP), and I highly doubt they can do much to make it better other than stripping it down to the bare essentials and putting something new on top of it (which will be "WinOSX")
