First tidy up your house, then ask others to come and have party there.
Seriously? XP? With security? You mean, like Windows 7?
I'm glad Microsoft is looking seriously to audio, after all these years. I'd say the first thing would be to create a serious workflow in the OS, something like Core Audio, where people could work with low latencies and several sample resolutions without having to reside on the expertise of the driver writers of the audio interface companys (which suck most of the time), and third party technologies, like ASIO. Something like Core Audio (yes, I'm pointing to Apple - they did that roght). But please do not come with another plug-in format
- we already have more than enough of those.
Another thing is improving the graphical aspect of the OS - please abandon that shitty flat appearance, which looks ugly as hell. You mat be flat(ter) without being ugly - OS X again could be called here. Even your Office icons for OS X look way better than the ones you did for your own OS
Anyway, welcome, and I hope you find some skilfull people that will help make Windows a better environment for audio.
