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.

Microsoft aren't evil, saying that they are devalues the meaning of the word.
They may be shrewd, ruthless and greedy but evil? No.
There are companies that are (say, Union Carbide or Blackwater) but MS is pretty far down on the "evil" scale.
