in thread Nobody Expects the Agile Imposition (Part VI): Architecture

Yes I knew that, so maybe I'm using the term "rewrite" imprecisely. To me, it qualifies as a rewrite because Microsoft chose not to adapt the existing Windows 3/95/98 code base for future Windows versions (e.g. Windows XP, Windows Vista) but rather to write a new code base from scratch. How about: Windows NT was a rewrite of the Windows operating system?
