It is reported that Microparp are having to rewrite 60% of the code for Vista see here
, well there is a surprise
This is probable a good thing for the future of Windows.
I think they should have changed 100% of their code years ago. Then they wouldn´t have to do the patchwork they struggle with today.
They also would have far less trouble with spyware, viruses and such because they could build an os that is designed to be networked not patched to.
(any competition comes to mind?)
But as mentioned by someone else, they´re run by suits.
And by then they probably said that they could make more money by patching than by rewriting.
As of today the expences and possibly the need to rewrite is much higher.
Anything good about M$?
Yes, their Mouses (have no experience with joystick or keyboard).
