Editorial Yesterday, a story made its rounds across the internet. It was picked up by many large news websites, and I'm sure it will be quoted by people until eternity. It was published by a large website, looked all fancy, it had multiple pages - it looked like it was really something. However, anyone with even the remotest bit of knowledge knows that the article was a collection of complete and utter bogus.

i got the feeling little has changed between windows vista and win7. can somebody do a md5sum of the system directory? that should give clear view of which files did not change (and is a lot easier to measure).

Not likely to work, since the compiler changes significantly every release.

If you're willing to pony up a couple thousand for bindiff, you'd have a better shot.
