How can we get the source code for windows?
 
Hello there,

Why wouldn't a group of programmers be able to figure out the source code for Windows? I understand that Linux is an open source code that is constantly being changed and updated and given away free, and Windows is closed source that cannot be changed or constantly updated. But why couldn't somebody figure it out? I am only familiar with paragent. Its an open source code which we can modify. Any opinions would be great.

Regards,

It is also protected by patents and copyrights and believe you me that there are lots of Microsoft employees sifting through every source coding there is to make sure theirs is not being stolen!

I say when Bill Gates retired he was scared that linux would take him over, so he secured it. I hacked my windows 3.1 installation yesterday :) (on another computer, of course)

hacking something as simple as 3.1 isn't saying much.

All you need is a decent understanding of the language and to deduce specific behavior and to target, analyze, extract and modify specific operations and you can so call "Hack" anything!
