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.

I doubt it will become unnecessary. We will need a fair paradigm shift, before that occurs, I think. Having more memory begets uses of more memory.

However, for general use cases, more RAM and no swap works great, on both Windows and Linux. Any process that can try to use up all my RAM deserves to be forcefully killed ;) .
