the Truth about Windows 7

Posted 24 February 2012 - 02:57 AM

I was just curious ...
C:\xampp\php>php -r "echo $_SERVER['OS'];"
Windows_NT

... well, I didn't expect that.

it wouldn't have hurt to update the OS string. (in other words, I wouldn't mind if $_SERVER['KERNEL'] (or something like that) or even a UA String like thing existed)


PS. you may move it somewhere else, if appropriate

What bugs me more is the actual version number. Windows Vista is 6.0, and Windows 7 is 6.1.

Apparently the Microsoft developers didn't feel that Windows 7 qualified as a new version; that it's only an upgrade to Vista. The PR department apparently disagreed...

PR knew with all the bad blood from vista that they needed Windows 7 bad. I wonder why they wouldn't just call it ver 7 and let that be the end of it. These are the things that people will ask about in 20 years if windows is still around. Why is Win 25 ver 24? :online2long:

If you understood the difference between the NT based kernel, & single user mode, then uh, no.
