As far as I know, Windows NT used a microkernel design based (though I
believe it was fairly loosly) off of Mach.  This is the same microkernel
that OSX is based off of.  Not that I follow Windows very closely, but
aren't the current Windows releases based off of Windows New Technology
Technology, therefore microkernel based?  I don't honestly know though...
