I don't know anything about it, but yesterday while I was waiting for lots of hardware to reboot I picked up some Windows magazine and started reading about Vista internals (Technet magazine April 2007, I think it is all online). One thing it mentioned was the certificate signing of applications - if a software publisher makes software for Vista, it has to go through a central authority and pay for certificates. No certificatee, no runee. But there is some testing thingie for software developers you can set. Whether that applies to Home Premium, I have no idea. hp-ux came back before I was done with the article, so that was that. The article referred to some online knowledgebase articles that explain in more detail.


-- is bogus.
Windows Vista saves data to a crash dump file in 64K blocks.  Previous
versions used a 4K block.  So Vista can crash ten times faster!
