And IIRC, there were only few parts of so-called kernel, which got based 
on NT-code in ME.  That is:

1, wider support at WDM level (than 9x) as the consequences of:
 a, some different networking code (maybe only support for newer NDIS);
 b, kernel streaming architecture engine;
 c, maybe support for larger USB devices and their functionality;
2, 2k-like GUI and the such shell.

If I am missing something, please, remind me.  Still, there were fully
functioning old port- and mini-port drivers, VxDs and another relicts of
9x on ME, so this beast (ME) should be definitely based on 9x "kernel".

Do not agree with me, folks?  Throw in your arguments! :-)
