Actually, Win2k and XP are built on the NT kernal, not DOS. Windows hasn't run on DOS in years...


Oh yeah... forgot about NT...  shows you what I know about Windows.

(Ir)regardless, I still heard the rumor, more than once, that Windows is being written in Unix.

Any truth to that Brad?

Haven't heard anything about that. I think the new Windows coming out (vista?) is based on the NT kernal - a mature and solid core. I'd actually be surprised if they made the switch at this point - my XP boxes are as stable as my OSX boxes...


NT is based on Unix. Apple took a bit longer to see the light.  Very Happy

The main reason for apple to swith to intel : TRUSTED COMPUTING

Prediction: Intel macs will be able run the windows OS, but not "vice-versa".

I think it's really all about ego's..

Bill Gates and Steve Jobs do not like each other... that's really what it's all about IMO...

Either one of them would sacrifice just to see the other squirm:

No,... I doubt windoze will ever run on a MAC... but I hope I am wrong.

Will Apple Adopt Windows?


They already did, back in 1984.

But it wasn't Microsoft Windows!  Very Happy
