I read an interesting article on slashdot today:
> Windows 7 will be a from-the-ground-up packaging of the Windows codebase; partially source,
> but not binary compatible with previous versions of Windows."

Sounds like they  format, i.e. maybe they use sth. other than PE then.
But even if they don't, I guess this could be a problem for the existing wine codebase
and require some infrastructural changes to it.
However, I don't know much about these things though and it's possible that I'm completely wrong, but
I though I'd just post this to wine-devel in case anybody is interested.
Feel free to discuss, or not to discuss, do whatever you want with this information ;-)

Maybe we're lucky and people turn away from windows completely this time and we don't even need to care
about Windows 7 xD
(though this is unlikely to happen, but dreams never die...)
