    Because the 9x kernel was obsolete. It was a weird hybrid of 16-bit and 32-bit technology, based on inadequate legacy code. It had fundamental restrictions that made it nearly impossible to support SMP or anything even resembling a security model.
    All the buzzt!

    What puzzles me is why they based 2000 on the NT kernel and not the 9x kernel? NT was a flop, and 9x seemed to be good.
    Because 9x was a piece of crap, and I have a cluster running NT 4.0 that hasnt needed a reset in over 2 years, and it only got it then because I needed to move it to my new apartment.

    NT wasnt a flop, it just wasnt marketed as a consumer level product.
