    MinWin is Microsoft attempt to combat Linux in terms of virus resistance and kernel features.  The only problem being Windows NT, Cutlers NT, is not designed with security in mind and is based off of VMS.  If OS/2 or VMS lived they would be having the same problems as Windows.  You cant put a finger on a leak in a boat and make it back to shore.  Microsoft needs to hire better kernel developers and just redesign Windows.  Scrap it and start over using perhaps GNU/Linux or BSD as the basis.  These were designed with security in mind and are more prepared to weather the storm.   Also kudos to Microsoft for including Divx support in Windows 7, now if they put in ogg support I would be about 55% impressed.
