This from Slashdot http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=07/10/18/236233 :

"Some small but significant details of the next major release of Windows
have emerged via a presentation at the University of
Illinois<http://www.istartedsomething.com/20071019/eric-talk-demo-windows-7-minwin/>by
Microsoft engineer Eric Traut. His presentation focuses on an internal
project called "MinWin," designed to optimize the Windows kernel to a
minimum footprint, and for [sic] which will be the basis for the Windows 7
kernel."

I thought this was interesting on account of the brief discussion a few
months ago about the footprint of MSWin vis-a-vis clustering.

The link is

but
right now that link seems to be overwhelmed.
