Microsoft’s Windows NT turns 20

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.”
