      This man needs no introduction, but for the sake of completeness he was the founder of Winternals, Co-Founder of Sysinternals.com, and today works in the Platform and Services Division at Microsoft. He played a vital part in the contruction of the Windows 7 kernel, and in this hour-long video he gets right into the details of the new OS. Seriously, geek porn right here! 😉

      Oh – he’s the guy who created Process Monitor by the way – so if you’re half as geeky as me you already love this man :mrgreen:

      I do indeed love that man!

      Nice link!

      I just wish the 5th edition of Windows Internals covered Windows 7, and was available as an ebook…

      The founding father of Windows workstation conversion sort to speak. Russinovich found that only two minuscule registry entries were preventing Microsoft BackOffice from running on a home edition of Windows. He has also pointed out several times that the differences between Windows NT server and the workstation editions are minimal and its mostly all about configuration. Certain features are server-specific as are desktop features “desktop specific” for a reason. For developers it makes it convenient to test code on one physical machine instead of two. It’s becoming more and more apparent that the only thing separating Windows 7 from Server 2008 R2 is functionality. What does Windows Server 2008 R2 have that Windows 7 doesn’t? We have been trying to mod Server to run windows 7 features but i bet it would be possible to hack up Windows 7 to run server roles like FTP, DHCP, etc, without 3rd party software. Windows Server is practical for me because i never used much of the Windows 7 functions that were available to me. Never used Media Center, didn’t care for Superfetch, aero snap is annoying, rarely used Virtual XP. Stripped down both OS’s come with practically even number of services +/- a few. I use Server so I can soak my feet in a server OS and get used to seeing how it operates in a business-class enviornment. Good way to train yourself and get certified for Microsoft.
