Interesting series of questions. Nonetheless, here's one answer:

(From another source)

"Who knows what NT really means? Some say that WNT?Windows NT?is a pun on VMS: if you shift each letter in VMS ahead one place, you get WNT. Similarly, NT is simply MS?Microsoft?shifted one letter. Such an explanations find favor among those who like the fact that HAL?from 2001?is IBM, each letter shifted back one. Whether such things were intended on the part of the developers, etc., is irrelevant; as have the explantions above for what NT means, such stories have managed to enter into a type of public mythology.....Much has been made about the "NT" in Windows NT; was it truly New Technology?"
