The NT kernel is really nice and well designed. No, really. 256 levels for priority, pascal style strings so no buffer overruns and can handle zero. Security level rings (until GDI got shoved in, for speed reasons). The top level UI is kinda meh. And in between MFC/Win32/Win64/.NET/OLE/ATL/ETC. So imagine a sandwich, organic rye bread on the bottom, economy white bread on top and a thick paste of sludge from the sewage works at Fukushima in the middle.

We have a equal opportunity Calculus class -- it's fully integrated.
