Fissile: JSTACAT: But, i would hesitate to trust a German Linux.

I could be wrong, but I thought that Windows NT, which gave rise to all of MS's modern OSs, was largely coded in Germany.


Thats a new bit of info for me, and very interesting. I will add this factor to many different mind files and see what develops.
It means that America is "subservient" intellectually in a major field. Makes me want to take it [NT] apart bit by bit...
Nahh too much time, i will compute the effects working with images.
NT has numerous built in doors as well, but seems more controllable than newer windows versions.
I really -HATE- the mft, in windows, that should be easy to wipe on a regular basis, but it isn't.
It just keeps getting fatter like a red faced German bartender.

The psychology of the Germans is interesting, They have a special touch with tech of all kinds.
If we don't watch out, they will end up with their fingers in everyone's pie, in a dominant sort of way.
The EU is a good example.
And now windows.... somehow, i feel disappointed in America, like we didn't win the war... we got "infected" and they are our invisible, inevitable rulers.
OTOH, i am German.... WTF
explains a lot, nationally and personally.
Machines, physics, tech in general come so easily to me its like climbing a tree, done with little effort, little study,, for fun. Did i get that from ancestry?
Yikes!

"Slipstick"?  Is that why the old Exchange site is called that?

Never heard that name for a sliderule.  (Used one but just for fun.)

Again, I'm not certain that Windows NT was coded in Germany, but that's a story I was told once a long time ago.   Perhaps someone knows the real story behind it?

It was coded in Redmond under the leadership of Dave Cutler from DEC ('VMS' : 'WNT' :: 'HAL' : 'IBM').

There's a decent book on the project and personalities behind it.
