Windows Windows NT turned 20 years old today. From a 1998 story about NT, written by Mark Russinovich, "I'll take you on a short tour of NT's lineage, which leads back to Digital and its VMS OS. Most of NT's lead developers, including VMS's chief architect, came from Digital, and their background heavily influenced NT's development. After I talk about NT's roots, I'll discuss the more-than-coincidental similarities between NT and VMS, and how Digital reacted to NT's release."

At Last the truth is comming out about what sort of theft goes on inside the MS Corp corridors... I am not going to say any more except that WindBlows will never regain it's strangle hold over the computing world The arrival of Linux was just the start of the onslaught against the MS Corp Pete


...anyway, I was privileged to work on OpenVMS 7.0 and 7.1 during my latter years at DEC. It was a TON of fun! I made a decision to leave to work with an ex-colleague... It was probably fortuitous in hindsight. I worked at DEC for 11 good years.
