Hardware, Embedded Systems The head of PC maker Acer, Gianfranco Lanci, has hit out at Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system, saying that the 'entire industry' was disappointed by it. Few buyers have purchased new PCs specifically for Vista, Acer's chief says "The entire industry is disappointed by Windows Vista," the head of the world's fourth-biggest PC maker told the Financial Times Deutschland in its online edition on Monday. Never before had a new version of Windows done so little to boost PC sales, he said. "And that's not going to change in the second half of this year," Mr Lanci said. "I really don't think that someone has bought a new PC specifically for Vista."

ALL Windows NT systems (NT, 2000, XP, Vista) are still pretty much like the Old Win9x only with the DOS kernel and command line recompiled to 32 bits.


Ignorance is Bliss as George Orwell so beautifully put it in the book "1984". If that is true, you must floating on Cloud seven with that quote above. LOL.

NT Kernel is NOT a recompiled DOS kernel, not in a LONG shot.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nt_kernel

The NT Kernel came from the base that IBM and Microsoft started together back in the late 1980s - early 1990s. They were working together a project called OS/2. That's right, OS/2. They had a split and both companies agreed to share the work done together. IBM took the shared kernel and made OS/2. MS took the shard kernel and made, you guess it, the first NT based kernel.

Who cares if the CLI uses the same commands as DOS. IT'S JUST A SHELL!!!!! With same logic one can say that the modern linux kernel is just a recompiled AT&T Bell Labs Unix kernel just because it uses the same SHELLS.

C'mon if you are gonna bash a product, do it after you have educated yourself on it. If you don't , you'll make yourself look ignorant.
