New features

  • Some System components (such as filesystem, gwes, device driver manager) have been moved to the kernel space.
  • The system components which now run in kernel have been converted from EXEs to DLLs, which get loaded into kernel space.
  • New Virtual Memory Model. The lower 2GB is the process VM space and is private per process. The upper 2GB is the kernel VM space.
  • New Device Driver Model that supports both User Mode and Kernel Mode Drivers.
  • The 32 process limit has been raised to 32,768 processes.
  • The 32 megabyte virtual memory limit has been raised to the total virtual memory (Up to 2GB of private VM is available per process).
  • The Platform Builder IDE is integrated into Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, allowing a single development environment for both platform and application development.
  • New security infrastructure. The redesigned one-tier security model is compliant with the Trustworthy Computing Security Development Lifecycle (or SDL). This ensures that only trusted applications can run on your embedded device.
  • UDF 2.5 filesystem.
  • Support for Microsoft's upcoming exFAT filesystem.
  • 802.11i (WPA2) and 802.11e (QoS) wireless standards, and multiple radio support.
