  • Blog Post: Virtual Machine Monitors, Exokernels, and Hypervisors, Oh My!

    For those of you that semi-regularly follow this blog, you may or may not have noticed that I've really been getting into OS Development lately. Of course, the first step is brushing up on x86 assembly language. Outside of that, it's a lot of Research, Research, Research, and more Research. Heck, even...

    Howdy all y'all. I'm hoping to get some feedback from all of you. Basically, I'm hoping to get a "reader's braindump" on what development features you are looking forward to most in Vista/Longhorn Server.

  • Blog Post: Writing Your Own OS With Visual Studio 2005

    Before I joined the ranks at Microsoft, a hobby I started to take up was Operating System development. Technically, I didn't get very far yet (I had just started). My "kernel" (if you can even call it that) basically just printed "Hello World" to the screen. But heck, it was booting up from a floppy...
  • Blog Post: Installing Ubuntu Under Virtual PC 2004

    After my post the other day linking out to a post about authoring file systems on Linux with Mono, I decided that I wanted to try it out myself. So, I went and grabbed the latest Ubuntu, and sojourned out to install it under Virtual PC 2004. I remember trying to do this 6-12 months ago and having it...
  • Blog Post: Authoring File Systems with Mono on Linux

    I know, this post isn't exactly Windows-related, but I thought it was cool nonetheless... Miguel de Icaza recently posted on his blog on the topic of authoring file systems with Mono on Linux . Since I've been digging into File System "stuff" at work lately dealing with TxF and the like, I find this...
  • Blog Post: PowerPoint As A Teaching Tool - It's Broken

    Yup, I said it. PowerPoint as a teaching tool? It's broken. It's broken badly. And unfortunately, there is a good number of people out there who either don't realize it, or don't care. First of all, thanks Seth Godin . Seth gave a presentation at GEL 2006 recently (link via PresentationZen , via Chris...
  • Blog Post: XNA Game Studio Express and writing your own games for the 360

    I know Dave , Tom , and Boyd had stated that they were pleasantly surprised that the announcements coming out at GameFest tomorrow hadn't been leaked. Well, close but no cigar (if this is indeed the announcement they were talking about). Of course, considering that it is already "tomorrow" on the east...
  • Blog Post: A Day In The Life Of A New MS Technical Evangelist

    I figured I would use this blog not only to talk about some of the cool technologies I'm currently working with, but to also increase the transparency into what the role of Technical Evangelist is actually like here at Microsoft. Keep in mind, of course, that I'm new to this position and hence am still...
  • Blog Post: The one where dogfooding almost ruined my weekend

    [The usual disclaimer about my opinions not reflecting the opinions of my employer apply here] At times, this was a very frustrating weekend. The biggest contributor to that frustration was a set of directions I got. You see, I was traveling from the Seattle area to Walla Walla, WA (think Northwest...
