Hardware, Embedded Systems The head of PC maker Acer, Gianfranco Lanci, has hit out at Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system, saying that the 'entire industry' was disappointed by it. Few buyers have purchased new PCs specifically for Vista, Acer's chief says "The entire industry is disappointed by Windows Vista," the head of the world's fourth-biggest PC maker told the Financial Times Deutschland in its online edition on Monday. Never before had a new version of Windows done so little to boost PC sales, he said. "And that's not going to change in the second half of this year," Mr Lanci said. "I really don't think that someone has bought a new PC specifically for Vista."

Basically ALL Windows NT systems (NT, 2000, XP, Vista) are still pretty much like the Old Win9x only with the DOS kernel and command line recompiled to 32 bits.

Never mind the reams of existing NT documentation, anyone with even rudimentary windbg skills can quickly prove everything you said wrong. But because I am always willing to admit I might simply be ignorant or wrong, please feel free to show us where the DOS PSP's are in NT, where the VxDs are loaded and where io.sys int21h calls are being used. Please feel free to post disassembly, stack trace, etc., as I would be interested to see exactly how Vistas kernel is ANYTHING like the Win9x kernel.
