Well, the DOS version of Windows, windows 1.x through Windows ME, didn't 
have TCP until Windows 3.1(1) (as winsock). The 386 enhanced version, 
I'm not sure where that was implemented or by whom. The Windows NT/32 
bit OS/2 was taken from BSD. Windows NT on through Windows 8 is based on 
the NT kernel which looks a hell of a lot like VMS, but that is a 
different discussion.
