Windows "The 16-bit Windows kernel was actually three kernels. One if you were using an 8086 processor, another if you were using an 80286 processor, and a third if you were using an 80386 processor. The 8086 kernel was a completely separate beast, but the 80286 and 80386 kernels shared a lot of code in common." As always, Raymond Chen delivers. If you don't yet follow his blog, you should.

The technical side is pretty good.

I used to have my share of issues about Microsoft until I worked in a few Fortune 500 companies.

Then I realized how they are seen from the outside and the differences between engineering, marketing and business.

Eventually I came to understand why Microsoft does certain things.
