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."

Oops. I accidentally voted you down when I meant to vote you up. Too bad there's not a way to undo that.

What bugs me more is that as soon as you comment you can no longer vote. I always forget to go through, vote first for the comments I think add the most, then add my own (usually worthless) comment.

I sorta understand why you can't vote after commenting, so you dont' down-vote replies to your own comment, but I would love to at least be able to upvote people after I comment.

And, change my vote. That'd be cool.
