Will Longhorn "Final release" use a NTFS?
and be able to run 9x, NT, and x86 programs?

#1, I bet NTFS might be an option however MS will be pushing its new file system, WinFS. As far as programs go, I think most of them should work, but there was a report out a while ago that contradicted that... so a lot of it is just waiting to find out :)

Did anyone notice that Explorer.exe is using nearly 85 MB of memory as well? I hope this is an alpha issue.... I think it would be kind of cool if the Performance tab of the Task Manager also listed processor utilization for the graphics card, particularly if the GUI processing will be offloaded.

Stubear, do you think Virtual PC will really be necessary? Other than the filesystem change (which I think would affect Virtual PC as well--perhaps requiring separate partitions for other OSes?), I would think that the support for legacy apps would be similar to that of XP, not really requiring anything other than the subsystems that are already there.

It's all speculation, but I could foresee problems running older apps in emulation/using Win32 code at the same time as working with LH apps/WinFS files particularly in the same partition. Why? The VFS can do lots of mapping to make the filesystems compatible, seemingly operate in the same way, but major differences are still going to exist. These differences would largely be transparent (not produce negative side effects) if you only worked on FAT/NTFS files in Win32 and only used WFS files in LH apps. But if an uneducated user starting modifying NTFS files in a LH/.Net app or a WFS file in Win32, file properties could quickly get mangled.

"OS X needs Virtual PC to run classic aps because it used a completely different Kernel" Uh, no, but I guess we know what you meant. Sort of.

No, it's wholly Apple's creation--no one else could build it and there's no need to emulate x86 or the Win32 instruction set--they needed to emulate the Apple Toolkit. It's much more akin to DOS emulation in NT5 than it is to VPC.
