People like Roy like to go on and on about Windows 7 (which is why I wrote
Off-Topic, But Not Really in the subject) and how it's just Vista with some
polish. Just as a bit of rebuttal, here's an interesting new feature of
Windows 7 that doesn't show up on the marketing copy.
The User Mode Scheduler
This is part of the Windows 7 push to better deal with multi-core and
multi-processor scaling. It allows applications to better control their
threads to make better use of multiple cores.
No, this has nothing to do with Linux, but then neither do Roy's ramblings
about Vista and Windows 7. It's just a data point in the "Windows 7 is
just vista sp2" crap that Roy and others like to spread.
