It is true that windows has some assembly code in the kernel, but that's because every major OS that really desires to interacts with its users need some Assembly code here and there in the kernel. But a good majority is witen in a C like language.

It's good to know that they're rewirting the network stack, I just hope they can do it right this time. I know that microsoft said that they were making XP tougher networkwise, and I can't really say I saw that happening. Windows firewall comming off by default without Service pack being a PRIME example.

Not that the current Networking is bad (ie crap), it just could use a LOT of fixes and improvements ;)

I hope Vista turns out better security wise than previous experience dictates (and price too ;) )
