    I love the Digital history stories. I was a VAX/VMS system manager once upon a time. MicroVMS, OpenVMS, Pathworks, VAX clusters. All that great stuff.

    The world is very different today, but it's always been fun!!

    How does OWMI compare with WBEM?

    I'm sure there are plenty of technical differences, but WBEM was based on a similar imperative. So why will OWMI succeed when WBEM didn't?

    Now I'm being Mr. Obvious: "Deep Refactoring" - does that mean I should be really hesitant about the move to this new Windows Server? Lots of testing, let the industry sort out the issues first, etc. Isn't the risk high when there's that much change?

    I don't imagine you want us to hesitate that much.

    I expect deep refactoring means stream lining the OS even further, allow for greater componentization. The emphasis on cloud alone furthers my belief. Imagine if it were easy to remove components of Windows it reduce attack surface. Think about how dotnet requires the iso to install now. That saves a lot of space. Now if you apply that to iis, rds, and other big time Windows roles, you're talking serious savings across something as big as Azure.
