Mark Russinovich’s technical blog covering topics such as Windows troubleshooting, technologies and security.
I wanted to update you on my recent and upcoming speaking engagements. First, I’ve been hosting a series of virtual roundtables for the Springboard Series program. Springboard’s purpose is to provide a one-stop resource for IT Pros evaluating, deploying and managing Windows. The most recent roundtable, which took place at the end of September, focused on virtualization technologies such as App-V, XP Mode, MEDV, and Remote Desktop Sessions, and how you can use them to address application compatibility as you move from Windows XP to Windows Vista or Windows 7. At the table we had Microsoft application compatibility experts and industry partners and it was another great discussion of the issues and tradeoffs of various approaches. Check out the recording here and the previous roundtables here.
On September 22 I delivered a session at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in San Francisco with Shiv Kaushik, an Intel Fellow, on how Microsoft and Intel collaborated during this release cycle to make sure that Windows takes advantage of innovations delivered by new Intel hardware, specifically the Nehalem platform. You can watch the presentation free on Intel’s IDF site here.
In November I’ll be speaking at TechEd Europe in Berlin and the Professional Developer’s Conference in Los Angeles. I’m delivering four sessions at TechEd, two of which, the Case of the Unexplained and Pushing the Limits of Windows, are based on blog post series I’ve been running:
At the PDC, I’ll be delivering the kernel changes talk and participating in the kernel portion of a Windows 7 boot camp pre-conference that’s free to everyone, whether you’re attending the PDC or not. Joining me will be Memory Manager architect Landy Wang and Windows Kernel architect Arun Kishan (who brought us great scalability in Windows Server 2008 R2 by removing the kernel’s dispatcher lock). You can find out more here.
I look forward to seeing you at one of my sessions!
Finally, a little off-topic, but I’ve signed up for Twitter and am shooting to be the anti-Ashton Kutcher. Actually, I’m setting my sites a little lower: I want to be the first user to get to 10,000 followers without ever tweeting or following anyone else (in other words, not using Twitter at all). Sign up to follow me here!

I just watched the IDF session you did with Shiv Kaushik. Unfortunately, the camera is focused on the speaker (you or Shiv), and although you both appear to be referring to slides, these slides are never shown. This certainly detracts from the presentation. Too bad, since this was quite interesting.
The slides for the IDF session are shown to the right side of the video. The animations do not always work it seems but most of the data is present
Case of the Unexplained 2009...Windows Troubleshooting with Mark Russinovich - Too bad I cant come in person but hope the vid's get uploaded on technet soon :)
Wow, how do you have time for all these activities! However you do it, I appreciate all the work you do for the blogs, your Sysinternal tools with Bryce, Windows Internals books with Dave, and all these videos you post.
On Pushing the Limits of Windows, I wonder if someone will ask about Geoff Chappell's article on Memory Limits in Windows Vista, and what would be the answer.
