Hmmm. Offtopic I know, but why do you think it's absurd? If they actually
go with the driver scheme and hardware protection models in NT, it should
be pretty stable. That's going to break backwards compatibility with
DOS and Win16 apps that want hardware access, but that's what Windows
needs to be truely stable.
