Phoenix, new compiler technology underneath Longhorn

Phoenix, new compiler technology underneath Longhorn.

On Thursday morning Charles Torre and I interviewed Kang Su Gatlin, program manager on the Visual C++ team. This guy knows a lot about compilers. Translation: he knows a lot about the future of Windows.

One thing that I took away from the interview is that Longhorn (next version of Windows) will be compiled with a new compiler, code-named Phoenix. So, off I went to Microsoft Research's site, put that code-name in, and out popped the Phoenix' Web site.

Kang says he's really excited by this new compiler technology. I'll have to learn more about this. Anyone know anything that can be shared publicly?  [Scobleizer: Microsoft Geek Blogger]
