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."

I have so much nostalgia for Win2K, I forget how much better of an OS Windows is overall.


For the most part. Aside from Explorer's tendency to crash at times, even though Win2k was given four service packs.
