Yea, it is frustrating to watch DRAM manufacturers profiting while MS had to fit Win95 into 4MB. Of course, this is not the only unethical tactics MS used to attack OS/2 later on. PX00307 mentioned "32-bit Windows extenders" while ignoring the problems.
IBM took the "old" OS/2 code (that both they and Microsoft had worked on) and tarted it up into OS/2 2.x and successors.
And after that MS attacked it using unethical tactics. And don't forget their attacks on DR-DOS, including Win9x dependence on DOS helping Caldera continue it's lawsuit against MS. Now you see why this is why one of my favorite topics.
The Workplace Shell also took more RAM too, which was a problem back in 1992. But it is still unfortunate that MS turned the OS/2 2.0 project into a fiasco.
I like to mention the fact that it helped Caldera continue it's lawsuit against MS when I was discussing how MS turned OS/2 2.x into a fiasco.
I am thinking of removing anti-discrimination laws completely (not just to create exceptions) and allowing regulators (such as anti-trust) to impose anti-discrimination conditions on specific companies instead, because of problems like this.
What is funny is there is a reason why SCO targeted Linux not BSD later on. You can thank Novell and Ray Noorda for this, Terry Lambert has several posts on this topic and the settlement agreement is now public too.

The old DirectX redists are dead and has been since Vista introduced WDDM, though the Platform Updates backports some things.
LibreSSL is not a complete rewrite.
Yes, but this saying nothing about the future of it etc.
This reminds me that the reason Server 2003 got an extra year of support is that they waited until after Vista SP1 to release Server 2008, and Vista RTM had many well-known problems.
I think calling it a "remix" is reasonable in this case. The idea is Marissa wants to get rid of some of the people hired under the previous CEO and replace it with much more talented people. Abuse of the term is still bad of course.
Well, Apple once got Blue Box on NuKernel, which would have been a good starting point.
Well, SSLv2 did take a lot of additional code to support, but the same is not true for SSLv3. I think every browser was going to disable SSLv3 soon thanks to POODLE.
That blog article actually inspired my own wishlist for Satya on my own blog that is poorly written.
