Rob Short is the corporate vice president in charge of the team that architects the foundation of Windows Vista. This is a fascinating conversation with the kernel architecture team. It’s our Christmas present to all of the Niners out there who’ve stuck with us day after day.
This is a very candid interview. We even ask ‘do you ever wish the registry had never been developed?’ Charles Torre does this ‘going deep’ interview. Out of all the interviews we’ve done this one is the most interesting because this team has such a deep impact on how reliable, scalable, secure, etc Windows Vista actually will be.
Interesting to see stuff like this happen. Microsoft is being a lot more “open” nowadays than it used to be earlier. All thanks to competition like GNU, Linux, Open Source, Firefox, Opera, etc etc etc. Cool! §
