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 is not particularly special. In fact, in the grand scheme of things, they're probably pretty tame compared to some old big corps from back in the day.

Rupert Murdoch ( ) and his companies are good examples of this. Microsoft doesn't even touch the shit these guys pull off.

I think when they hacked some dead teenager's mobile phone it definitely went into totally f--king evil.

I am glad "News of the World" is dead.
