I'm not asking for any links to it or anything as I believe that's against forum rules...anyways, has anyone here been lucky enough to get ahold of some of the real leaked windows source code? :cool:

No, I haven't seen any. I've heard that it's a great deal of fun to read though; it's full of poorly written code and profane comments. I'm somewhat leery of trying to find it - it is probably as illegal as things get...

yeah but the comments would be a good read :p...heh, no wonder why windows is the way it is XD

Sorry about the highlighting, I had to search for it so I could copy/paste it.

Here it is:

/* Source Code to Windows 2000 */

#include "win31.h"
#include "win95.h"
#include "win98.h"
#include "workst~1.h"
#include "evenmore.h"
#include "oldstuff.h"
#include "billrulz.h"
#include "monopoly.h"
#define INSTALL = HARD

char make_prog_look_big[1600000];
void main()
{
while(!CRASHED)
{
display_copyright_message();
display_bill_rules_message();
do_nothing_loop();
if (first_time_installation)
{

make_50_megabyte_swapfile();

do_nothing_loop();

totally_screw_up_HPFS_file_system();


search_and_destroy_the_rest_of_OS/2();


make_futile_attempt_to_damage_Linux();

disable_Netscape();
disable_RealPlayer();
disable_Lotus_Products();
hang_system();
}

write_something(anything);
display_copyright_message();
do_nothing_loop();
do_some_stuff();

if (still_not_crashed)
{

display_copyright_message();

do_nothing_loop();

basically_run_windows_3.1();

do_nothing_loop();
do_nothing_loop();
}
}

if (detect_cache())
disable_cache();

if (fast_cpu())
{
set_wait_states(lots);
set_mouse(speed, very_slow);
set_mouse(action, jumpy);
set_mouse(reaction,
sometimes);

}

/* printf("Welcome to Windows
3.1"); */

/* printf("Welcome to Windows
3.11"); */

/* printf("Welcome to Windows
95"); */

/* printf("Welcome to Windows
NT 3.0"); */

/* printf("Welcome to Windows
98"); */

/* printf("Welcome to Windows
NT 4.0"); */

printf("Welcome to Windows
2000");


if (system_ok())
crash(to_dos_prompt)
else
system_memory =
open("a:\swp0001.swp", O_CREATE);


while(something)
{
sleep(5);
get_user_input();
sleep(5);
act_on_user_input();
sleep(5);
}
create_general_protection_fault();
}


:cheesy:

Thats great! Thanks for the link to that other post, was a very interesting read. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only person who comments like that. :)

That fake Windows code is pretty funny. I definitely connected with some of that...

Side note: Catweazle's post count is now 1023, a number that most of us find somewhat significant...

I don't want to even touch leaked Windows code, because sometimes it's hard to find this kind of stuff and when you get a hold of it, then you are unsure if it's safe or not because many people launch bad copies on the internet.

yeah but if you get a good copy not only do you get major bragging rights :p but you can read the interesting and sometimes funny comments supposedly made by the programmers hehe

I'd feel all out of date and out of fashion if I had one of those I reckon. I haven't seen a 'BSOD' since Windows XP was invented ;)

My WinXP gets BSOD once in a while (of course I fixed them though, but it doesn't mean that you don't get them when you have WinXP :))

yeah, I've gotten a bsod on windows xp numerous times before and once on MacOS X (or as mac users would say, a kernel panic)
