Kuro5hin has a great piece up showing some of the juciest comments from the leaked Windows 2000 code. Some of these quotes are hilarious:

    private\ntos\w32\ntuser\client\dlgmgr.c:

    // HACK OF DEATH:

    private\shell\lib\util.cpp:

    // TERRIBLE HORRIBLE NO GOOD VERY BAD HACK
    private\ntos\w32\ntuser\client\nt6\user.h:

    // The magnitude of this hack compares favorably with that of the national debt.

And another good one:

private\shell\ext\tweakui\genthunk.c:

    /* CallProc32W is insane. It's a variadic function that uses
    * the pascal calling convention. (It probably makes more sense
    * when you're stoned.) */
