<< Ok Peter, Austin & Helmut... I'll stop responding despite the fact that
only about a dozen posts have been done and it upsets you.
Brian, your points are well made and you're a very knowledgeable programmer.
However, with DOS, the very core around which windows had been built, I will
hold on to the belief that windows is still just a shell (a very big and
bloated shell... which is difficult to embed!) This is a discussion about
opinion and semantics, a difficult thing to argue convincingly. More of an
act of faith than logic, akin to the merits of C++ Vs FORTH.
I enjoyed the exchange, thanks.

Of course we ALL KNOW that FORTH is VASTLY SUPERIOR to C++.....
