<div>"Some small but significant details of the next major release of Windows have emerged via a <a href="http://www.istartedsomething.com/20071019/eric-talk-demo-windows-7-minwin/"><font color="#555555">presentation at the University of Illinois
</font></a> 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."
<div>I thought this was interesting on account of the brief discussion a few months ago about the footprint of MSWin vis-a-vis clustering.</div>
<div>The link is <a href="http://www.istartedsomething.com.nyud.net/20071019/eric-talk-demo-windows-7-minwin/">http://www.istartedsomething.com.nyud.net/20071019/eric-talk-demo-windows-7-minwin/</a> but right now that link seems to be overwhelmed.
