Ok, quick question:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff542653%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

says that that guest ID encodes a bunch of version numbers and IDs
pertaining to the guest OS. And in that case, I would've thought
you'd encode kernel versions or whatever like it is done with
LINUX_VERSION_CODE, for example.

How does this define fit with that scheme or was it chosen completely
arbitrarily?

Thanks.
