Is Vista Unix based?

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Just read this arstechnica article and in the article it says "He told reporters that competitors wanted to "castrate" the new operating system, which begs the obvious question: if Vista gets castrated, does it just become one of many UNIX?"

So, was this a re-write from scratch using UNIX as the foundation?

    Some editions of Vista do, however, ship with a Unix personality. But the system itself is still NT.
