As I was reading through my new issue of the NT Insider today, an
interesting historical note struck me.
Peter commented that "I think we all agree that WDF has taken hold".
Consider this. WDF has now been in existence longer than WDM had been
when WDF came out. In fact, WDF is now older than Windows NT was at the
time WDF was released.
Many still think of it as the new kid on the block, but in software
terms, at age 15, WDF is practically creaky. It is very mature
technology. When WDF was released, the Linux kernel had just had the
first release of version 2.6. Since then, 3.x has come and gone, 4.x
is considered mature, and 5.x is in development. Since then, the C++
has evolved through three very significant upgrades. The iPhone did not
exist when WDF was released, and they're now on iOS version 12.
It's amazing that we still have to push people to WDF.
