Windows 7 and Concurrency
Now that the Windows 7 keynote is over we can finally start exploring some of the improvements. This is going to be a truly awesome upgrade. As Paul puts it, Windows 7 is Windows Vista done right.
If you’re not sure where to start then I’d suggest starting right at the bottom. Listen to Mark Russinovich introduce many of the improvements made to the Windows kernel. This is really going to benefit those of you with more than 64 processing cores. :)
Incidentally, if you’re wondering why Mark referred to the Concurrency Runtime as “concert” the reason is that the APIs for the scheduler are included in the concrt.h header file. For more on that check out what Rick has to say about Visual C++ 10.
