Microsoft also created the first UNIX port to x86: Xenix.

As Oedipus and the Titans showed, sometimes we create our own usurpers.

MS ran off the hell off of Xenix internally. Mail, calendaring, etc. I remember when NT was going to be the best Unix out there... And then Win32 happened and coolaid got sloshed around. The NT Kernel could have been an amazing Unix.
