I read about that. But hey - you can search for NT 4.0 source - it leaked and is out there to be found using filesharing and stuff ;)

Hasn't the source for DR-DOS been available for some time ? Now it's FreeDOS or something ? I ran that as Novell DOS for some time, it was pretty good. Better than MS-DOS, in fact :D
Folks say that if you listen real close at the height of the full moon, when the wind is blowin' off Nantucket Sound from the nor' east and the dogs are howlin' for no earthly reason, you can hear the awful screams of the crew of the "Ellie May," a sturdy whaler captained by John McTavish; for it was on just such a night when the rum was flowin' and, Davey Jones be damned, big John brought his men on deck for the first of several screaming contests.
