    Windows 7 on a Diet


    Windows 7 on a Diet, to Match the Hardware Requirements of the Vista Hog

    Under the leadership of Steven "Don't Call Me Transparent" Sinofsky, Senior Vice President, Windows and Windows Live Engineering Group, Microsoft will no longer repeat the five year gap between Windows XP and Windows Vista, or the mistakes done with the latest Windows client. The first sign that the Windows 7 apple will drop fat from the Windows Vista tree is the fact that the next iteration of Windows, due at the end of 2009, will be tailored for the same hardware infrastructure as XP's successor.

    Rather than being a re-write of Microsoft's proprietary operating system, Windows 7
    will simply build on top of Windows Vista's graphics, audio, and storage subsystems. At the same time, the Vista kernel will evolve into Windows 7's core, as Sinofsky and Christopher Flores, Director Windows Communications denied that Microsoft is building a new kernel from the ground up. Windows 7 will indeed feature an advanced model of componentization and a new kernel architecture, but it will do it by straying only superficially from what Vista is today.

    "While these changes will increase our engineering agility, they will not impact the user experience or reduce application or hardware compatibility. In fact, one of our design goals for Windows 7 is that it will run on the recommended hardware we specified for Windows Vista and that the applications and devices that work with Windows Vista will be compatible with Windows 7," Flores stated.

    Hello Norm, good article!

    I just wanted to reiterate this; for the Vista haters to have something to choke on...

    Thanks Ted. With all the hype about 7 it's easy to forget that Vista is a damn good OS.

    Hello Norm, how's it going friend?

    I am very happy with Vista and will continue to use it after I have 7 installed; each on its own separate HDD. I'll probably always have a softspot in my heart for Vista,..... being the first OS I've ever used! Kind of like your buddy and Windows ME.
