"...because Microsoft uses DCE (Distributed Computing Environment) as developed by the Open Software Foundation in the early 1990s"

I think that should read:

"...because Microsoft butchered DCE (Distributed Computing Environment) as developed by the Open Software Foundation in the early 1990s"

From memory, they 'tweaked' certain 'standards' and built a wall between the NT and DCE worlds. Then, seven years later, they realised that this had not been such a great idea and sucked up to Kerberos. But it had badly damaged DCE by then.
