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.

So in reality, any new version should be called Windows 11


No, in reality it should be called Windows 4 since this would be the fourth version of the NT kernel if MS had done a proper 1.0 release instead of syncing it with the current Windows version. Windows 1-3.11, 95-98, and Me don't factor into the count as they were built on DOS.

This is the say way that Mac OS X.4 is really NextStep 5.4 and not Mac OS 10.
