Windows Microsoft's Professional Developers Conference is currently under way, and as usual, the technical fellows at Microsoft gave speeches about the deep architecture of Windows - in this case, Windows 7 of course. As it turns out, quite some seriously impressive changes have been made to the very core of Windows - all without breaking a single application. Thanks to BetaNews for summarising this technical talk so well.

Different doesn't always equate to better. Windows has performed well enough up to date, and now performs better. AND I can watch my Netflix movies online with Windows... ;)

That Windows Vista performed well enough is arguable, but that Windows 7 performs better seems pretty much true.

It's nice to see that they actually addressed shortcomings, rather than just adding more features blindly.

Vista was fine after SP2

the tech press just didn't bother reporting on it, bashing MS with the Vista stick was more appealing.
