That's the system architecture design for "Longhorn".

That BIG pile of blue/yellow/green on the top is all of the new stuff built up 
on top of .net (xml/rpc meets jvm).

Ouch.

There is a good look at where this is going:

"Complexity is the enemy of security,"
  --Elias Levy

"Agreed complexity is the enemy of security, "
  --Roland Postle

"...operational complexity is the enemy of
       security,"
  --RFC3364

"Complexity is the enemy of security"
  --Bruce Schneier

"Complexity is the enemy of security."
  --Nigel Willson

"Complexity is the enemy of security," 
  -- Charles Palmer

"Complexity is the enemy of security."
  --Scott Culp (Microsoft)

"At the crux of Longhorn will be the datastore that Microsoft is building into 
its SQL Server "Yukon" database. He (Gates) also noted that Microsoft is 
counting on simpler and more intuitive user interfaces to hide the 
_increasing_complexity_ created by this type of model from business and 
consumer customers."

"There's good evidence that the update and patch processes are making 
progress, but the huge complexity of the Web Service based messaging 
environment is going to be a new order of challenge for Redmond."
  --CBDI Forum

We will all be busier than ever...
