Only Microsoft can kill Windows (Win32)

Once upon a time on the far shore of the ocean, there was PC-DOS and it was hand-crufted in glorious assembly language. Then came Win16, which supported C and Pascal, Followed by Win32 and Win64, which mostly supported C. Like Prince Charles, Windows .NET and C# are the designated successor in waiting (or was that Midori?), and now in the name of ESR, Redmond wants you to switch to C++ anda new OS API. (where is the documentation for the NT kernel?)
