"By contrast, Windows evolved from a single-user test and control program (SC-DOS) into a graphical user interface (GUI) environment, again for a single user on a single CPU/computer, that was eventually grown into a multi-tasking, vaguely multi-user O/S, recently with added support for multiple CPUs, and with a series of closed-market add-ons to provide limited networking services."
This is OUTRAGEOUS NONSENSE!! The strand of Windows you're talking about was abandoned ten years ago. The Windows we use now is a continuous development of Windows NT, which was designed from the ground up as a multi-user, multi-tasking, networked OS by Dave Cutler, who was the architect for DEC VAX VMS.
I'm not particularly a Windows (or Mac, or Unix/Linux) fanboy, but I simply can't let drivel like this go uncommented.
