Yes, the ink is barely dry on the boxes for Windows Vista and we're already planning the next version of Windows. And no, I have no clue what it'll be called. But that isn't a decision I get to make, oh well...
The folks responsible for the firewall and IPsec are actively seeking ideas and suggestions for improvements in the next version. Some areas up for consideration include:
- The configuration and management UI (the new advanced snap-in, not the control panel)
- Diagnostics and troubleshooting
- New scenarios and features
- Documentation and help
- Anything else you can think of
Actually, we aren't limiting this to the next Windows. If there are major deployment blocking problems that you have now -- bugs, performance hits, whatever -- let me know now. We can consider some ideas for Vista SP1 and Longhorn Server.
Thanks! Looking forward to your thoughts.
