personal note: I think it won't be wise to post any source code or screenshots, I don't want any of you or macminute.com to get in trouble with MS<br><br>do you think it's true??<br><br>http://www.osnews.com/story.php?news_id=6000<br><br><br>from osnews.com<br><br><br>Exclusive: Windows 2000 & Windows NT 4 Source Code Leaks<br>Posted by creamhackered on 12 Feb 2004 - 21:22 CET | 232 Comments Post a Comment<br>Neowin has learned of shocking and potentially devastating news. It would appear that two packages are circulating on the internet, one being the source code to Windows 2000, and the other being the source code to Windows NT. At this time, it is hard to establish whether or not full code has leaked, and this will undoubtedly remain the situation until an attempt is made to compile them. Microsoft are currently unavailable for comment surrounding this leak so we have no official response from them at the time of writing.<br><br>This leak is a shock not only to Neowin, but to the wider IT industry. The ramifications of this leak are far reaching and devastating. This reporter does not wish to be sensationalist, but the number of industries and critical systems that are based around these technologies that could be damaged by new exploits found in this source code is something that doesn't bare thinking about.<br><br>We ask that for the wider benefit of the IT community that members and readers support Microsoft by forwarding anything they know about the leak to the Microsoft's Anti-Piracy department.<br><br>%-) <--- me?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA<br><br>It's funny how they are worried about a hacker exploited more security bugs now that they have the source to Windows.<br><br>Meanwhile, Linux and FreeBSD - Everyone can look at the source, that's why it's secure.<br><br>Personally, if the source to Winblows landed on my lap, I wouldn't even want it. I suspect it's the worst and sloppiest code ever written.<br><br><br><br>[color:blue]All your sock puppets are belong to us</font color=blue>

I think what they're really scared about is everyone finding byte for byte duplicate code from the early Macintosh OS. Wouldn't that be a fun day in court...?<br><br><br>Art is about making something out of nothing then selling it. ~ Frank Zappa
