Thanks to Johann for the heads up for this new Engineering Windows 7 blog. This new blog is hosted by two senior engineers Jon DeVaan and Steven Sinofsky leading the efforts around Windows 7. So if you are interested in Windows 7 I strongly suggest you subscribe to the blog and take part in the 2 way conversation!
A bit about the blog:
"The audience of enthusiasts, bloggers, and those that are the most passionate about Windows represent the folks we are dedicating this blog to. With this blog we’re opening up a two-way discussion about how we are making Windows 7. Windows has all the challenges of every large scale software project—picking features, designing them, developing them, and delivering them with high quality. Windows has an added challenge of doing so for an extraordinarily diverse set of customers. As a team and as individuals on the team we continue to be humbled by this responsibility."
I dont think the engineers at Microsoft wear Hard hats.
