Thats quite comical. Unfortunately your rant is not based on reality. CSRSS.exe(win32 subsystem) is one of the most stable pieces of code in Windows. Windows Safe mode relies on it. As far as drivers go you can choose not to install any graphics drivers.
Irrelevant. Anything that runs in the background without needed is a potential liability. With software, it's only as stable or secure as long as long as problems don't show. GUIs are particularly problematic in the case of Windows because of how entangled into the working of the OS they are.
And if you don't install drivers, you're still using whatever default drivers that Windows has. How else would the GUI with that command prompt window work?
The UNIX spec has nothing to do with kernel modularity. Also the Linux kernel is anything but modular. Its a giant binary blob. Thats the reason there is never going to be a stable kernel ABI layer for many things such as display drivers. Something that NT had about 17 years ago.
It certainly appears that the lack of modularity in Windows is at least partially to do with the Windows OS architecture, so it's fair to say that Unix enjoys better inherent modularity over Windows. Either way, in practice just about any Unix-based system is miles ahead of Windows in terms of modularity, so it's something of a moot point.
Also, if the NT display driver architecture has been such a success for 17 years, how come they seem to change it every second release?
You're mistaken. MinWin is *already* in Windows 7 and server 2008. They're refactoring their codebase and while they're not going to make a new product with it they're using it to build a complete OS - aka Windows.
I said that MinWin was the underlying kernel being used in Windows 7 and Server 08 R2. You reply with "No, you're wrong, it's being used in Windows 7 and Server 2008". Apparently I'm missing your subtle genius here.
Thats it? Got any more refutations for imaginary points that I never made?
Well, you were the one who was talking about the great MS kernel that takes up 25MB of RAM, and how it could be the basis for embedded systems, so if you are so offended by your own ideas, I suggest keeping them to yourself.
