On October 13 last week, Microsoft’s distinguished engineer Eric Traut gave a presentation at the University of Illinois about Microsoft’s virtualization technology and also mentioned Windows 7 - the next version of Windows after Vista. And believe it or not it was on video. Whilst the presentation is not directly about Windows 7, it does contain a demonstration of MinWin - an internal project to build the most efficient Windows kernel which will in turn be used in Windows 7.

The whole presentation (WMV) goes for approximately 1 hour and includes a very deep look into hypervisors. I’ve clipped out the 8-minute segment which Eric focuses on Windows 7 specifically to make it easier to watch.

Very nice to see microsoft is off to a start on the next OS.... i highly doubt I'll buy it, as I (plug your ears hardcore windows lovers) am planning to switch to Mac OS... But, until this Vista PC gets old and slow, Im stuck with vista.

Thanks for the info...its always nice to see what's happening internally!
and what about that ASCII Boot Screen...anyone never thought about it before! But that's just a placeholder it seems!

vista is just xp with more compatibility issues an a revamped visual style and a few new icons, xp is still more stable, but yes vista is outdated, ever since ap was released.
