A View Inside Windows 7

August 18, 2008

There is an exellent new Microsoft blog called Engineering Windows 7, that has an excellent post today from Steven Sinofsky, the key manager of the Windows 7 effort. If today’s post is any indication, the blog promises an interesting look into how all the different aspects of Windows are developed and should give people a better appreciation for why the final release looks like it does, i.e. why a feature that seems simple to implement isn’t there.

The blog shows no indication that it will be revealing features that may ultimately be cut, but it is pretty interesting nonetheless. More More transparency about how complicated the work they do is can only help Microsoft.

The existence of this blog lends credence to Ed Bott’s speculation in May that Windows 7 will probably be released in 2009.
