Windows Two weeks ago, I published an article in which I explained what was wrong about Randall Kennedy's "Windows 7 Unmasked" article. This was noted by Infoworld's editor-in-chief Eric Knorr, who suggested that Randall and I enter into an email debate regarding the various points made in our articles. We agreed upon publishing this email thread as-is, unedited (I didn't even fix the spelling errors), on both Infoworld and OSNews. We agreed that Randall would start the debate, and that I had the final word. Read on for the entertaining email debate (I figured it would be best to give each email its own page, for clarity's sake. My apologies if this makes each individual page much shorter than what you're used to from OSNews).

Adding new subsystems to Windows will increase the thread count, so adding any functionality/services, major revamp to Windows will introduce new threads.


Redesigning existing services could also increase the thread count.
There's no cause-and-effect relationship between increase in thread count and new features. It just so happens that sometimes a new feature will increase the thread count.

Optimizations in algorithms and fixes will not justify enough to increase the version number.


Really? and you say this as a developer? Scary.

Changing the policy of developing the NT kernel may lead that the thread measure is not right, but for now is really valid.


Unless you happen to know what microsofts policies for kernel development is there's no way you can know this fort sure.
