#1 monolithic kernel

#2 monolithic kernel aka "hybrid" kernel7

#3 estimate based on total SLOC28 + dependent on driver selection, X not included

#4 estimate based on total SLOC which is sourced from Gary McGraw "Building Secure Software - How to avoid security problems the right way"28 i.e. dependent on driver selection, GDI/GDI+ included

#5 0.016% defect density 2005 survey, 2004 survey, + guess 0.004% increase 2006 update Linux bugs increasing = 0.02%

#610 based on estimate16 63,000 in W2K Software Quality: Why Windows 2000 has 63,000 \"bugs\" and Linux* does not

#7 roughly - depends on options kernel, Microkernel

#8 estimate, based on newsgroup discussions and Microkernel with a lower bound of 3.9M lines from Windows Embedded CE 6.0 kernel Special Report: Windows CE 6 arrives with 100% kernel source, and upper bound of estimated 50M lines for all of Vista

#9 interrupts

#10 ISR, NT Lesson 8 - Interrupt and Exception Handling

#11 interrupts, I will Do It Later: Softirqs, Tasklets, Bottom Halves, Task Queues, Work Queues and Timers

#12 DPC

#13 Interrupt_handler

#14 IRQL

#15 Open source

#16 Closed source

#17 1.7MB vmlinuz from Ubuntu 7.04 Linux 2.6.20 vmlinuz-2.6.20-15-generic

#18 >4.6MB=(2.4+0.5+1.7+?)MB , 8.0MB=4.6+(0.7+1.7+1.0)MB Windows 2003 SP1 fix Note - it is not clear which files correspond to kernel mode and user mode.
