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?
