Yeah. It would feature multiple virtual machines... All windows
applications run in the same VM... When you open a DOS window of any
kind under win3.11 it runs in a fully protected and preemptable VM...

Visual basic uses its own byte code. You would need a VB decompiler...

I have had great luck decompiling stuff like the DPMI host that I use to
run quake. Unfortunately Decompiling is only half the work of
reverse-engineering something... It would be far easier and more
effective to break into microsoft and steal the spec... 

I doubt our lawyers could do it... =( 

People who work on computers use linux; People who work on life use
Macintosh =)
