Re Windows 95, thanks for the correction, I'll update the
root node. It seems that Windows NT was a rewrite of Windows 3 and that Windows 95 was derived from the Windows 3 code base.
Update: after two objections, I've now expunged all references to Windows NT in the root node. :)
Re Python 3, I only claimed it was meeting "substantial resistance". Maybe that's unfair, depending on your interpretation of "substantial", but it's certainly meeting some resistance based on random web chatter on the subject. Well, I'm a Python user and I'm resisting it. ;-) My personal opinion is that breaking backward compatibility was unwarranted for a release with relatively modest improvements. Many businesses with large investments in Python 2.x code will resist Python 3 indefinitely because upgrading will prove too risky and/or too expensive.
Thanks for the successful rewrite examples; I knew there must be a lot more but didn't spend enough time
