    Windows 8 MinWin Evolution from Windows 7



    Microsoft has moved onward with its plans to isolate the heart of Windows, and as such MinWin has evolved as the Redmond company made its way from Windows 7 to Windows 8.

    The next major iteration of Windows features in excess of 6,000 references to MinWin, that’s 60 times more than the 100 references sported by Windows 7. (via ITWorld)

    MinWin is the core, a stand alone, bootable core with no dependencies. there are a ton of dll's outside WinMin. See this video, he starts talking about WinMin around the 4:00 mark.
