It might be a good idea to have a video with someone from the kernel team explaining how the NT kernel works. Not everybody here has read books on that, and I'm sure many people would be interested. Even better, get someone who can really tell us why certain things are designed the way they are, and what the benefits or disadvantages of that design have turned out to be since the conception of NT. This video already does some of that, but it focuses on one area of the kernel. Not that that's really a bad thing, but I just think it'd be a good idea to try and paint the big picture too.
Funny you should mention this, Sven.
I am going to introduce a new series on Channel 9 in the relatively near future which I'm calling Deep Windows (but that may change). This video is in fact a precursor and your reply gives me even more incentive to make Deep Windows a reality. Also, I will be starting a more speculative and theoretical "interview" series that will include roundtable discussion among very big thinkers here at Microsoft.
It's going to be a deep year on Channel 9.
EDIT: I'm leaning towards calling the series Going Deep. Yes. That's it.
