Question:
What is the difference between Windows and Windows NT?



Replies:
The most important things are it is a true 32 bit code (runs quicker) and it is a true multi-tasking (threading) architecture. Other things will include: Better memory control/regulation, (applications cannot overwrite other applications memory) built in networking, better security for logging in, and the architecture will allow it to run on different hardware.
