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.

I found this magazine, which I sadly trashed later, that featured an article about the 386.

It didn't see any need for the 386, because the 286 was so great and its development would go on well in to the late 90's.
