Anyways, my vote is definately a no (but nothing about h4x0r'ing anything).

a lot of vulnerabilities will be erased rewritting the code but new ones will appear...

The article it's long but worth the time.
To see this you must defy our poor memory and see our time and life in their true dimensions.

1 4m teh |337 h4x0r
anyways, maybe code something from scratch other the next releases but then again, why mess with something thats made so much money and made life a lot easier

instead they should go look at the source code line by line

Should Microsoft do a complete recode of Windows? I believe Apple did this with their Mac OS X...
I think this would eliminate a LOT of vulnerabilities and make the OS a lot faster than how it is now...
What do you think?
In installed sp2 and wiith no problems. But since sp2 has come out, it would seem that now we are faced with even more dangers to the systems. They fix one problem only to find another and then another.
It might be in their best interest to recode it all and do it right this time, as I for one am sick of microsoft and thier sloppy work and very poor excuses. While many computer systems are being hurt and the people also, Microsoft is laughing all the way to the bank. It is very disheatening to say the least.
I am also considering going to another OS entirely and that would be Linspire.

I'm just hoping longhorn will be good. otherwise unless some FORCE is used on Billy i don't think a rewrite of a code will happen.
u know, unless millions of ppl start emailing microsoft and walking to seattle and wanting their money back or wanting a complete re-write of a product
now here's what i actually think. now there is a core which's known to have some bugs. it can be fixed so i'd go look at individual components to fix them. and MS is doing that. (though very slowly )
when u have a stable system going u wouldn't want to change it since u don't know how the new one's going to be right?. they'll try new things on the new windows and they won't have much knowledge in those. so it'll be a failure unless they take time on it and debug it carefully. but now as
i said earlier, there are specific known bugs and they should be fixed.....

I can't vote as this road to recode has already been taken.

i never tested it but i think not, reason it's that compatibility it's deeply integrated, what you remove with nlite it's the file properties option.
hmm wait so then if we remove the compatibility support will xp run nicer? (well at least remove it with nlite if not all)

I think it's a matter of taste one like linux the other like windows there are even people who like dos.
In a way a recode will be good cause maybe it will improve things, but you never can be sure about that.
I know with this remark i will get the linux users on my roof but i think if you really gonna search linux will have bugs too, also if it really will get populair there will come more kind of viruses too for it.
so in this i can't decide what's better
