Default Windows 2000/NT source code leaked to the net

According to slashdot.org, the windows nt/2000 source code has been leaked to the net :D

Check it out here (if you dig in the comments for a while you'll already find the url which has the directory listing of the leaked source, which is about 2 MB in itself):

I agree with the frequently stated opinion in the slashdot thread that the best thing to do is to never, never, never, look at that source code for the sake of any future software development that I might do.

Groklaw has a discussion on this. That site has been a treasure to anyone following the SCO/Linux controversy.
Microsoft Denies Leaked Code
The site maintainer, Pamela Jones, or PJ as she is called there, strongly recommends against peeking at the code.

I think BitTorrent is great. I am using it at this moment to download a Fedora distribution. An interesting article on the about the utility and the author was published in the New York Times on the February 12th (File Sharing's New Face). Here is the slashdot on it: BitTorrent's Creator Bram Cohen Interviewed

It is an interesting read. Covers the application, implications, and the author Bram Cohen. Despite such a widely used utility, Bram Cohen had been in suprisingly poor financial circumstances until quite recently.

He notes that BitTorrent is not anonymous; that anonymity is "fundamentally antithetical to the architecture."

figures doesn't it? I'm holding off service pack 2. It intrudes my computer a little too much(not to mention it adds TCG compatibility to Windows XP )

What I've always wanted-windows that crashes in 64 bits instead of just 32 bits.

Why not switch to Linux and leave that overpriced Windows bull behind?
