We Are Morons: a quick look at the Win2k source

by Volker Weber

Selznak takes look at the leaked Windows 2000 code, kicks a few tires regarding the comments and then comes to this conclusion:

In short, there is nothing really surprising in this leak. Microsoft does not steal open-source code. Their older code is flaky, their modern code excellent. Their programmers are skilled and enthusiastic. Problems are generally due to a trade-off of current quality against vast hardware, software and backward compatibility.

Food for MS-haters, me thinks.
