Kenny Kerr is an elephant in the legacy programming china shop.
Kenny Kerr is Chuck Norris of modern Windows. He has legendary magical powers.
All perhaps amusing but. This is all about solving the problem of legacy. there is no way around it: Legacy is Microsoft enemy number one. And Microsoft is going against that enemy. All hands to the battle stations.
These (might) be all the signs of Microsoft (final) decision to takle the legacy problem head on. And Kenny is just one very prominent sure sign of that.
